Indiana's 5th District
The race for Indiana's 5th District is still too close to call as of 12:45 p.m. Wednesday.

"We know they're still counting the votes, but we feel we are on the track to win," Spartz said during a speech Tuesday night.

In response, Democratic nominee Christina Hale's campaign manager released the following statement:

"Hoosiers deserve to have their votes counted and voices heard,” Joann Saridakis, Hale's campaign manager, said. “The Spartz campaign’s declaration is premature and flies in the face of our democratic process. As we said earlier, there are almost 100,000 mail-in votes in the Fifth District that have not yet been counted, specifically in Marion and Hamilton Counties. We will continue to monitor vote totals before making any formal announcements and we would ask that Victoria Spartz extend voters that same courtesy.”

Recap from the polls
Most counties reported no major issues at the polls on Election Day.

In Madison County, voters were waiting in line long after the 6 p.m. polling place closing time.

Madison County Clerk Olivia Pratt says there wasn't enough voting machines for the big turnout of voters today.
