For the first time in several elections, Indiana’s primary is important in the Republican and Democratic presidential races in 2016.

There are 92 Democratic delegates at stake and 57 Republican delegates. Democrat Bernie Sanders and Republican Ted Cruz are both hoping to win to narrow the gap between them and frontrunners Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump, respectively.

Polls are open from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m., but voters who are in line to cast a ballot at 6 p.m. are still legally allowed to vote. Indiana voters must have a valid state ID card to vote and can choose to vote in either the Democratic or Republican races.

Polling locations can be found by visiting the Indiana Voters website or by downloading the Indiana Voters app. 

Anyone who is concerned about issues with voting or potentially fraudulent activities can file a report with the Indiana Secretary of State’s office by calling 1-866-IN1-VOTE or 1-866-461-8683.
