From all indications, tonight's election results will show some very close races, and not just for president. That's confirmation that each vote counts, especially in close races.
It is our election tradition to publish a recap of our endorsements in a handy take-to-the-polls form. So here's a refresher course on our endorsements.
With all the red tape and red ink in Washington, D.C., the nation needs a fiscal conservative in the Oval Office. Between Democrat Barack Obama and Republican Mitt Romney, it's obvious which candidate best fits that description.
For Northwest Indiana, the choice for governor this year should be easy.
In the three-way race for U.S. Senate, one candidate stands out as the kind of moderate Indiana needs.
These are troubled times for the United States. That makes Northwest Indiana's choice in the 1st District U.S. House all the more important.
Offering perspective on today's issues
The Indiana Senate District 5 race is, in part, a referendum on the rapid pace of education reform in Indiana.
The Indiana House District 15 race offers two good candidates — Democrat Tom O'Donnell and Republican Hal Slager.
In Indiana House District 19, incumbent Shelli VanDenburgh, a Democrat, faces Ron Johnson, the Republican pastor of a popular church.
The Indiana House District 12 race is one of the hottest in Northwest Indiana. Redistricting is a key factor in this.
In Indiana House District 11, voters face two good candidates -- Democrat John T. Hart and Republican Rick Niemeyer.
Voters in Indiana House District 4 face two candidates who have served as state representatives — Democrat Greg Simms and the incumbent, Republican Ed Soliday. The latter is the better choice.
Lake County is guaranteed at least one new county commissioner next year and should get another newcomer as well.
Porter County voters face two good choices in this year's District 1 (south) county commissioner's race.
Six candidates are running for the three at-large seats on the Porter County Council. Ignore the party labels — factions in Porter County government don't line up that way anyway — and look at the candidates themselves.
Northwest Indiana voters will find three names at the bottom of the ballot, each seeking another 10-year term on the Indiana Court of Appeals. It's a yes-or-no question. Vote yes.
The battle lines are clearly drawn in the race for Indiana's superintendent of public instruction. It's not just Republican vs. Democrat, but also the status quo vs. rapid change. We support reforms.
Hoosier voters face two choices in the attorney general's race this fall — Republican Greg Zoeller and Democrat Kay Fleming. Zoeller is the better choice.
INDIANAPOLIS | With fewer than 100 days until Election Day, you'd think the man who has done more to put Republicans in control of Indiana state government than anyone else would be itching to hit the campaign trail — perhaps in a large recreational vehicle.
