Voters say polls in Indiana moved smoothly on election night Tuesday

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- As many polling locations across the Hoosier State closed Tuesday evening, there was still a short line outside the New Albany-Floyd County library.

Overall, voters say there wasn't a long wait.

With apparent record turnout across the state, Floyd County was no exception.

Of the 59,000 registered voters in the county, about 21,000 cast ballots.

In the last presidential primary in 2012, that number was only about 9,600.

Once the polls were closed, all eyes turned to the results.

Floyd County Republicans came together at Calumet Club in New Albany. It didn't take long for Donald Trump to be deemed the clear winner.

And, over at Knights of Columbus in New Albany, the county's Democrats had a little longer to wait.

Would it be Hilary or Bernie?  For hours, the votes were too close to call.

Ultimately, Sanders edged Clinton in what he deemed afterward an upset victory.
