Indiana early voter turnout is down

Nov 5, 2012

Voter turnout in Indiana has gone up in three consecutive presidential election years, including 2008’s record high.  Indiana’s Secretary of State says she’s hoping for another record this year, but some political watchers say that’s unlikely.

Secretary of State Connie Lawson says early voting has been strong so far, but she says early voting this year is a little off from the last presidential election.

“Compared to this time in the election process in 2008, we’re about 85 thousand ballots behind what we were in 2008,” Lawson said.
