RECORD EARLY VOTE PRECURSOR TO BIG ELECTION DAY:
An historic number of early voters is causing anxiety for county
clerks, who are bracing for waves of voters and a late night spent
tallying on Election Day (Hayden CNHI). In communities big and
small, election officials have added voting machines, poll workers, and
vote-count teams in anticipation of a still-rolling wave of voters
turning out for a contentious presidential race and close contests
elsewhere on the ballot.

 

PENCE TO VOTE IN INDIANA THIS MORNING:
Republican vice presidential nominee Gov. Mike Pence and Indiana First
Lady Karen Pence will vote at St. Thomas Aquinas School at 11 a.m. (Howey Politics Indiana).  The school is located at 4600 N. Illinois Street, Indianapolis.  After
voting, the Pence’s will depart from Indianapolis International Airport
at noon for New York City where they will join Donald Trump and family
to watch election results.

 

CLINTON UP 4% IN FINAL FOX POLL:
With one day before Election Day, Hillary Clinton has a four
percentage-point lead over Donald Trump, according to the final Fox News
national pre-election poll of likely voters (Fox News). She’s
ahead by 48-44 percent, while Gary Johnson receives 3 percent and Jill
Stein 2 percent. In the two-way race, it’s also Clinton over Trump by
48-44 percent.

 

4% CLINTON LEAD IN CBS TRACKER:
With just one day left in the 2016 presidential race, Hillary Clinton
holds a four-point lead over Donald Trump nationally, 45 percent to 41
percent — similar to last week. Few voters say their minds could change
(CBS News).

 

FIVETHIRTYEIGHT GIVES CLINTON 70% VICTORY CHANCE:
First things first: Hillary Clinton has a 70 percent chance of winning
the election, according to both the FiveThirtyEight polls-only and
polls-plus models. That’s up from a 65 percent chance on Sunday night,
so Clinton has had a good run in the polls in the final days of the
campaign.

 

SENIOR HOLLINGSWORTH’S PAC MAKING ANTI-YODER ROBOCALLS: It seems Trey Hollingsworth’s main backer is unaware of – or indifferent to – Indiana laws prohibiting political robocalls (Howey Politics Indiana).
A robocall received and recorded on voicemail by HPI at dinnertime
yesterday was attributed to Indiana Jobs Now, a political action
committee funded solely by Joe Hollingsworth, Jr., the father of the
Republican candidate in the race to represent Indiana’s 9th CD.

 

YODER CAMPAIGN TO SEEK INJUNCTION FIRST THING THIS MORNING:
Indiana Attorney General Greg Zoeller’s opinion is being sought on
apparent last-minute computerized, automated ‘robo-calls’ made by
‘Indiana Jobs Now,’ the SuperPac of Joe Hollingsworth, on behalf of his
son Trey Hollingsworth, the candidate for Indiana’s 9th
congressional district, according to a news release from the Shelli
Yoder for Congress campaign. “This is a matter worthy of review by
Indiana’s top law enforcement officer,” said Alex Rosselli, Shelli
Yoder’s campaign manager. “After recent reports of Tennessee Trey
falsely claiming residency in at least six states other than Indiana,
his father has now violated Indiana law in his pursuit to buy the
election for his son. The Hollingsworths seem to think that they are
above the law, or don’t believe that they will ever be caught or
punished.” The Yoder campaign stated it is seeking the counsel of the
Indiana Attorney General’s Office and will pursue an injunction first
thing this morning.

 

LAWSON’S OFFICE ‘CONFIDENT IN INTEGRITY OF ELECTIONS’:
With Election Day rolling in, the Indiana Secretary of State’s office
is taking extra measures to prepare for a potential cyber attack
(Mullis, Statehouse File). “I can tell you we are confident in
the integrity of our elections,” said Valerie Warycha, communications
director for the Secretary of State’s office.

 

MADISON COUNTY TO PAY RANSOM IN COMPUTER HACKING CASE:
On the advice of their insurance company, Madison County officials are
moving forward to pay ransom demands by a unknown group that attacked
the county’s computer system (de la Bastide, Anderson Herald Bulletin).

 

MAYOR HENRY RESTING FOLLOWING HEART SURGERY: Fort Wayne Mayor Tom Henry is recovering from heart surgery (McGowan, Inside Indiana Business).
Deputy Mayor Karl Bandemer will handle day-to-day operations with the
help of other city departments.

 

CLINTON CARRIES DIXVILLE NOTCH: Dixville
Notch, the quirky northern New Hampshire town that traditionally votes
early on Election Day, has tallied this year’s results — and Hillary
Clinton is the local winner (Politico). Clinton won four votes,
while Donald Trump picked up two.

 

ASTRONAUT VOTE OUT OF THIS WORLD: This election is officially out of this world (CBS News).
NASA astronaut Shane Kimbrough, the sole American currently off the
planet, has filed his absentee ballot from the International Space
Station.
