Noon was the cutoff to vote early in Indiana. However, hundreds of voters in line by noon are expected to have to wait well into the afternoon for their turn to vote at the City-County building in downtown Indianapolis Monday.
County clerks across the state said early voting was brisk through Monday morning. Marion County Clerk Beth White said the wait late Monday morning was about an hour and a half. White says as of Sunday, 38,000 people had voted early in Marion County. She says 4,200 people voted early on Sunday which is a record.
White believes the figure would have been larger had the county had satellite voting this election. She says without satellite voting, numbers aren't likely to top the 2008 presidential election. Many who voted early say they're working on Election Day and Monday voting was most convenient.
