The Indiana primary is tomorrow, as Hoosiers will select their major party nominees for federal, state and local offices.

Floyd County Clerk Linda Moeller says early voting has been light. She’s predicting a local election day turnout of about 25 percent.

“Anything to do with politics, you know, 12 to 24 hours is a lifetime, sometimes things can change overnight and spark interest sometimes. But if the voter turnout that’s been in this office is an indicator, I think the voting on election day will be light,” she said.

Moeller says voter interest will pick up in the fall, with the presidential election topping the ballot.

Today at noon is the deadline for early voters to cast their ballots in Indiana.
