Porter County May Delay Election Results Again


VALPARAISO, Ind. (AP) — Officials in a northwestern Indiana county plagued by vote counting delays say the release of General Election results may face yet another delay.

Vote counting began Wednesday morning in Porter County after a mix of problems, including the need for 12 county polling sites to stay open late Tuesday after those sites failed to open on time. Officials initially said vote counting was expected to be completed by early Wednesday evening.

But by Wednesday afternoon officials said information from the county commissioners indicates that "the release of election results may be unlikely today."

The county commissioners have ordered the county sheriff's department to secure all the areas where votes are being counted.
