Political contributions don’t mean engagement. It’s a Hoosier thing that we expect votes to count, not dollars.

Likewise, the “voter accessibility policies” metric is broken. That doesn’t mean engagement, it means FRAUD. One day, in person, ID required, paper ballots, open source machines, and PURPLE THUMB DYE. Not very accessible, but VERY honest. Hoosiers tend to be OK with sacrificing convenience for integrity.
