Voter Turnout Light in Some Spots, Heavy in Others

A few places have reported trouble and some have had heavy early voting.

STATE WIDE--Voter turnout so far in Indiana has been varied. Some places had long lines almost as soon as the polls opened up. Other places had little or no wait.

At Connection Point in Brownsburg, the lines were long.

"I'm really tired of the divisiveness in our country right now," said Christine, who voted in Brownsburg. "I'm lookig for candidates who don't just say that they going to reach across the aisle, but who really show me that they know how to do it and can do it."

At one of the main polling places in Indianapolis, IPS headquarters, lines built quickly.

"I think it's an important election day and we all need to turn out," said Hector Lopez, who voted at IPS. "It is a tight atmosphere. But, I think it's a charged time. My brother got me out here to vote."

In Tippecanoe County, the election board met Tuesday morning to iron out problems with the electronic sign in machines.

In Jasper, radio station WITZ reported 30 percent had voted early. Republican candidate for U.S. Senate Mike Braun is based in Jasper.

"I won't lie, I did cast quite a few protest votes," said Christine. "I'm a little tired of some things that are going on right now and so, this is my opportunity to make a change."
