INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) – The polls officially closed on the 2016 Election at 6 p.m. CNN predicts Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump will take Indiana and Kentucky.

Democrat presidential nominee Hillary Clinton had a lead in Vermont.

On Tuesday, millions of Americans marked the end of a bitterly divisive presidential campaign by standing in long voting lines. They expressed both strong support and deep dislike for Republican Donald Trump, as well as for  Clinton. But if they agreed on one thing it was that, after a presidential campaign laced with vitriol, they would at least have the final word.

Trump was favored to win Indiana’s 11 electoral votes. Races for governor and U.S. Senate are expected to be close.


Indiana has been in the spot light this election year because of Republican Gov. Mike Pence being on the national ticket as Trump’s running mate.

Other big races include, the Indiana Governor’s Race, the 9th District Congressionalseat and the open seat on the U.S. Senate.

More than 677,000 ballots were cast throughout Indiana.
