Noon Edition airs on Fridays at noon on WFIU.
Indiana midterm elections are just two weeks away as residents get ready to vote for county, state and U.S. House and Senate representatives on Nov. 8.
This could be a pivotal election for Indiana residents due to the many hot topics and issues that were prevalent this year. Issues regarding abortion laws, rising property taxes, gun laws, COVID-19 and more could have a large impact on who residents choose to vote for. Republicans continue to control the Indiana’s House, Senate and statewide offices – including governor. GOP control is expected to continue, though there could be some changes because of the many hot-button issues that have been in the news this year.
More information about how and when you can vote can be found here: “Midterms approaching: how and when to vote”
We will talk with our guests Friday about the upcoming election and everything Indiana residents should look at they cast their votes.
