>Indiana is split

>I read recently that Indiana’s polls close earlier than almost any other state. However, this Presidential election will be the first in history where the polls close in Indiana at different times. Why is this, you ask?

Most of Indiana (as of 2005) is on Eastern Time, but there are 12 counties in the NW and SW corners that are on Central time. The part about this that makes it interesting is that Obama is expected to do really well in NW Indiana (you know, Chicagoland). So if the polls close at 6pm ET in “Indiana proper”, and then an hour later in Gary, we might have to wait longer than usual for them to “call” the state one way or another.
