The Women’s Studies department at IPFW isn’t having a great month. Many professors and students in the program were Hillary Clinton supporters, and they were hoping to see the first woman elected president of the United States.


Turnout for the 2016 General Election is expected to meet or set records in the Hoosier State.

Allen County Council President Roy Buskirk died with less than a week left before the election. That means his name was still on the ballot, and Buskirk received a winning number of votes for the at-large County Council seat. Democrats and Republicans disagree about what party will fill his empty seat.
