Bright sunny but crisp day here in Northern Indiana. Hard to find a parking place, had to wait a little, but all was calm and orderly.

This is notably a Republican stronghold.

Landslide for Romney/Ryan.

FIRST voter in Lawrence precinct 5, AGAIN (four presidential elections in a row).
No problems, paper ballot fed into a scanner.

People near Noblesville came in to find their touch-screen units not working. They were turned back to try to vote again later today.

South side of South Bend. I was voter 39 at 7:30 am. Two years ago at about the same time I was voter 11.

My district is more conservative than most of South Bend, so I take this as good news.

Longest line we’ve ever encountered in this very heavy Republican county. We vote pretty much the same of day each election day. Way longer line than 2008. No doubt in my mind who they were there to vote for. Hoping this kind of enthusiasm carries over to Ohio.

Amount of signs say Joe will lose (he is a rat dem) and Mourdock will win.

Pence will be new gov.

Pence is future presidential material.

I’m in porter county. I went to Jackson township school to vote at 6am and there were about 100 poeple waiting. I had to go to work so I’m going to return later.

Get out and vote for Mourdock; he needs the votes, and we desperately need his vote in the Senate to silence dingy Harry and overturn 0bamacare.

Pence will win handily, and will be an excellent Governor.

Susan Brooks will be our Representative.

I voted early, but my son got to our Fishers precinct at 6:00 a.m. since he has to open the shop at 7:45 and didn’t want to be late. He was back home a little after 7:00; busy, but orderly. Our precinct will probably turn out 80%, and we are a heavy Republican county.

Went to vote here in Pike county early this morning, consolidated voting here in the city of Petersburg 4 precincts in one voting location, went smoooth.

I did notice that even the Democrat HQ here in the county didn’t have a Obama/Biden sign, and I was told there are only 3 known Obama signs in the entire county.

EVERYBODY here has a FRIENDS OF COAL sign, not looking good for the socialist today.

Huge turnout in my District of Seminole County Florida! Bigger than anything I’ve seen in the past! Heavily conservative county too.

Frankton (Madison county) - just got back. Poll worker told me it was the biggest morning turnout she’s ever seen. I had to wait about 15 minutes.
I let a little old lady with a cane go ahead of me in line. Nice woman. Reminded me of my grandma. No doubt she was there to vote the Marxist Kenyan out of office, lol.

Voted in downtown Indy just before 7:00 this morning. Area, as you may know is heavy D’rat. I was the 64th voter and my wife the 65th. Only 5 other people appeared during the 5-10 minutes we were there.

Appears to be a very light turnout, especially considering a number of voting sites have been reduced this year. Should be a problem for the D’rats.

One other polling place I passed on the way home—in one of the Barton Towers (subsidized housing), looked practically deserted.

I live in Westfield (Hamilton County). I arrived at my polling place at 06:20...parking lot full and cars lined down the street on both sides. I’ve never seen anything like this! I waited 1 hour to vote.

Outside Terre Haute - my first time voting as a Hoosier (just escaped out of Illinois). People in line at 8am this morning had never seen such a large turnout. I probably waited 20 minutes to vote. Go Romney/Mourdock!

Voting in Terre Haute at 9:15 this morning. It was a steady flow of voters.

When I inserted my ballot I saw that I was voter number 125. There are two machines at my location.

I voted Saturday. WE opted to go DURING the football game because lines were so long PRIOR to it. We still waited over an hour to vote.

General observations. The ones waiting in line tended to be CONSERVATIVE. 150 + waiting, not one minority, even though this is as very diverse community. I did watch 20-30 minorities walk up, look at the line, and turn around and leave. I saw the same thing amongst the college age kids. They didn’t want to wait.

If we are typical, Romney will lead in early Indiana voting.

Lafayette, Indiana here! Voted at the Tippecanoe County Fairgrounds at about 8:30 AM. Cars parked out to Teal Road (SR 25). Line was long, but moved quickly. I was back to work at 9:00. Anyone voting here, I would suggest the Fairgrounds as I believe it is the largest vote center in the county and there were always machines available while I was waiting.

May the heros of Benghazi be proud of how we vote today.

They gave their lives for us, now we need to give our votes for them.

Vote as if the lives of our Military Men and Women depended on it.

If Romney wins Vigo County, he should be well on the way to the White House. Its voted with the national winner all but two times since 1892.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vigo_County,_Indiana

“The county is one of the best bellwether regions for voting U.S. presidential elections; it has voted for the winning candidate in every election since 1956 and in all but two elections since 1892. It continued the trend in 2008, voting for Illinois Senator Barack Obama by a 16-point margin.

Holmes is part of Indiana’s 8th congressional district, which is held by Republican Larry Bucshon.”

Voted in Campbellsburg, Washington County's Brown Township. Mostly long-term residents, middle-age and up at the polls, now late morning.

The town's younger adult population is probably mostly at work, but there are not a whole lot of them. Unfortunately there is a good deal of riffraff residing in the town now---I suspect they will not even vote.

Three voters in our household, of course all of us voted straight-Republican.

You have a choice here between paper and electronic voting. Paper ballots are placed in a scanner upon completion. I don't know if that scanner also does the actual reading and tabulating.

Romney--Pence--Mourdoch--Young !!

The ladies checking our ID said it’s been busy like this since they opened.

I voted straight ticket - no reason not to based on who was running. The ONLY one that gave me pause was Chard in the 5th district. He’s Libertarian and I appreciated his candid and articulate explanations of his position. I get really frustrated with the canned messaging of the larger campaigns and love it when people talk like a real person (even in writing). Unfortunately there were a couple of deal breakers for me. Rupert shot himself in the foot with his compromising language on abortion. The issue is polarizing because it deals with life. Either be for or against it but don’t be lukewarm on it. And if you are don’t tell me about it because you will lose my vote every time.

Frapster, you asked about Bennett for Superintendent of Public Instruction yesterday, and I was going to reply but the servers got clogged up.

I met Bennett at our GOP Club; he’s very energetic. Taught & coached at Scottsburg, where my wife is from. Very much not an NEA hack, as his opponent would be. Favors local choice in schools, and wants to reward success and punish failure instead of the union way. I’m confident with him in that post.

I did a ton of reading on him and it was a no brainer. His ideas may not be proven but I love them. Why not bring a free market approach to our schools? I think competition is good for the process. And I have no sympathy for the establishment where the education system is concerned. When I see the young vote breaking for liberal ideals right out of high school and college clearly something is way out of kilter. I just voted for a guy in running for our school board here in Noblesville - he’s about to get an earful about what this constituent expects to keep my vote.

The more I read about his opponent and her union involvement the more I knew it was a no-brainer.

Hamilton County / Noblesville / Grace Church (33/34)

We went at 8:30am. The line for District 33 was over 1 hour. This was a lot longer than 2008. The line for District 34 (my District) was 10 minutes.

I was thinking of pressing charges at where I went to vote at 6:15 this morning, it was humiliating.

I was harassed by the old lady working the books, being told that I should be ashamed that my license was two weeks expired and told to get my “lazy butt” up and get it renewed.

THEN I was sexually harassed while waiting in line when one of the republican clerks came up and goosed me while waiting for a machine to open up.

*sigh* No one took me seriously when I complained to the judge working the polling place though, I was forced to confess the old lady was my mom and the worker was my wife he just put a sticker on me and pointed to the door.

Voted in Westfield in Hamilton county at 11:45. We are a HEAVILY Republican district. Poll worker said turnout substantially greater than in 08. If this is how we turn out nationwide, Dick Morris will be proved right.

Morgan county here, I haven’t talked to my wife yet on how the turnout was compared to the last 2 elections but around here we have a huge republican tilt.

I voted at Hamilton Co. (SW Clay). The turnout was HUGE. The poll workers told me that. The largest they have ever seen. 2-hour wait in line! While I was there, Richard Mourdock was there outside for about an hour. He was in Evansville this morning and heading north this afternoon.

BTW, this is a heavily Republican area.

Brown Township, Hendricks County
(west of Indianapolis)
Republican stronghold
Massive turnout, at least 2x the most I’ve ever seen in 25 years voting at this location, confirmed by poll workers.
2hr 15minute wait
NOBODY leaving once they get in line

smells like 2010 / Chick-Fil-A

Vigo County voter here. It is one of the stronger Democrat areas of the state actually, so if Romney wins here, it IS significant, IMO. Went to my polling place about five till noon today during an early lunch break. People were moving in and out, but it wasn’t crowded and no lines at all, which is actually probably a positive thing.
