Today is Election Day.

Allen County has reorganized and consolidated voting locations since the last election. As a result, voters in 161 precincts – about 47 percent – will have a new voting location for this year's elections.

This year, the county retired 33 voting locations and added 18 to accommodate the county's 275,000 registered voters.

At that time, Beth Dlug, director of elections, predicted a 25 percent turnout in the primary and 45 percent for the general election.

Voters can call 449-7547 or go to to check voter status, polling locations, view a sample ballot, get candidate information or to get election news from the Allen County Election Board.

Hoosiers can also go to the state website at to see which candidates will be on their ballot.

“I encourage all Hoosier voters to visit to educate themselves on who they'll be voting for and where they'll be voting,” Indiana Secretary of State Connie Lawson said in a statement.

Outside Allen County, Hoosiers may also call the toll-free Hoosier Voter Hotline at 866-IN-1-VOTE for information, polling locations and to file grievances.

Staff will be on hand to answer calls from 6 a.m. to 7 p.m. today and from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. on normal business days.
