INDIANAPOLIS – Jeff Maurer, a Libertarian candidate from Carmel, announced on Thursday, Aug. 19, he is seeking the party’s nomination for Indiana Secretary of State in 2022.
Maurer’s career spans tech, transportation, and budget and finance. He serves the Carmel community on the Economic Development Commission and the Home Place Advisory Board.
The news release announcing the election bid said many Hoosiers don’t trust the election results and are concerned about fraud. The Secretary of State is solely responsible for ensuring that every eligible vote is counted correctly and that Hoosiers trust the results.
“As Secretary of State, I want you to have a receipt for your vote, so there can be no doubt in how your vote was counted,” Maurer said.
Maurer also plans to focus on advocating for small businesses in Indiana by working to shrink big government.
Maurer, 38, was born in New York City and moved to Indiana in 2013 “for a better quality of life, after being exhausted by the corrupt politics, big government, and high taxes of New York,” according to information appearing on his candidate website.
Libertarians in Indiana do not participate in the taxpayer-funded primary elections, the news release said.
Instead, candidates are nominated by party members at an annual state convention. The 2022 Libertarian Party of Indiana state convention will be held in March.
