Early Voting Ends in Indiana

SHARE Early Voting Ends in Indiana

Early voting ended at noon today in Indiana. Election officials are now turning their attention to tomorrow when a crush of voters is expected.

Indiana Secretary of State Todd Rokita says he wasn’t surprised that long lines were the norm throughout the state. With only 100 sites available for early voting, that was to be expected, Rokita said.

By tomorrow, 5,400 precincts will open, but Rokita says that still may not speed things up.

ROKITA: The fact of the matter is that in Indiana and Illinois and across the nation, we are going to have those long lines. I think we all have to be concerned about as election administrators across the country is that voters are treated as uniformly as possible.

More than a half-million Hoosiers took advantage of early voting. The most hotly contested presidential campaign in recent memory in Indiana comes to a close Tuesday with the state still considered a toss up.
