INDIANAPOLIS (AP): Indiana’s Election Division says the primary is running relatively smoothly so far.
Election Division Co-Director Angie Nussmeyer says so far things are running normally for a primary that involves presidential candidates.
She also says nearly 98 percent of voters who requested absentee ballot applications for the state’s primary have completed and returned those ballots.
Indiana has seen a record number of absentee ballots cast for Tuesday’s primary. The previous record was about 185,700 absentee ballots cast for 2008’s primary.
Nussmeyer says counties were still receiving absentee ballots by mail. Absentee ballots include in-person ballots cast at county offices or early voting centers, mailed-in ballots.
