Indiana set to go to the polls

Primary Day Tuesday

INDIANAPOLIS - The Indiana primary is Tuesday. And, in southeast Indiana, that means some changes could be in the works.

A lot of attention is being paid to the GOP primary for U.S. Senate. There, six-term incumbent Richard Lugar is facing a daunting challenge from Indiana Treasurer Richard Mourdock. Recent polls have shown Mourdock, who is a Tea Party favorite, with the lead. But Indiana's primary is open and it's possible that moderates and Democrats could end up turning the tide in Lugar's favor.

Also, all of southeast Indiana is no longer in the 9th U.S. House District. Not only is it in the newly redrawn 6th District, but that District's current representative, Republican Mike Pence, is stepping down to run for Governor, leaving the seat open. It is a crowded field for both Republicans and Democrats.

The polls will be open from 6 a.m. until 6 p.m. If you don't know where you vote, you can go to to find out.
