Non-partisan advocacy group Common Cause Indiana is monitoring the polls today. The organization focuses on politics and Policy Director Julie Vaughn characterized the problems reported as typical.

“At the very start of the day doors locked, people showing up late, election machines that they didn’t have the key for so voting couldn’t start,” Vaughn said.

Vaughn said the organization received a lot more calls about voters’ partisan behavior.

“Some voters feeling uncomfortable because of the way other voters are acting," Vaughn said. "That’s really been the one that is really new this year.”

She said more people may have reported partisan behavior today because of a heightened awareness there could be problems at the polls. Vaughn said wait times across the state were shorter today compared to early voting.
