Not yet, anyway. We're chatting with our fingertips until later in the evening, when we wrap up this chat.
We'll be commenting on results as they come in. You can join the conversation by submitting your comments on the chat, or via Twitter by using the hashtag #nwipolitics
Definitely. We'll get all the results in Lake and Porter counties.
I have placed links to results up at the top of this chat. We will be posting results later on our site, but for now, the best way to get the latest results is from the county and state sites.
So what did you think of voter turnout today. Did you hear crickets while you were at the polling place?
About a third of the Porter County votes have been counted. Jeff Good holds commanding lead over Nancy Adams and William LaFever in the 2nd District commissioner race.
Those results in Porter County are coming in fast!
Kyle Yelton is beating Jim Biggs so far.
Kyle Yelton, Michael Jesson and Karen Conover are leading their GOP Porter County Council races.
With more than half the Porter County votes counted, Jeff Good is up by 900 votes over incumbent Nancy Adams.
I think it's safe to say Dave Reynolds will face Mike Brickner for Porter County sheriff in the fall. That's going to be an interesting race.
Hebron schools referendum to raise property taxes: No 200 / Yes 135
I'm not surprised that Porter County voters seem to be in the mood for change. The infighting between the council and commission has worn on the public.
Hebron lost their last attempt at a referendum by just 4 votes. The thought was that the cuts the school was forced to make would boost their case for the property tax increase.
Doug Miller holds a small lead over Bob McCasland in the race for Center Township Trustee.
Yes, Doug, that Porter County sheriff's race will be interesting. It's not just Democrat vs. Republican, it's Portage (Reynolds) vs. Valparaiso (Brickner).
I agree, on the anti-incumbent mood, Robert. Even if an incumbent wins, by a close margin, it should be seen as a clear message that voters are upset.
And in Lake County, not a single vote counted yet.
Not all officeholders are corrupt. Many are exemplary.
Michael, you may as well ask why the sky is blue.
Munster native Todd Rokita issued this statement on his primary victory in Indiana's 4th congressional district:
"Serving the people of Indiana is a great honor, and I am humbled to be the Republican nominee for Congress in Indiana’s 4th District. I am running for Congress to continue fighting for all people so that they can build better lives for themselves and their families. This will take leadership and someone willing to tell the truth. And a lot of times the truth is not pleasant to hear. But the truth is this: we are $17 trillion in debt and on our way to $200 trillion, making the current generation the first in our history to leave the next worse off. Washington is broken, and the best way to fix it is to make the tough decisions to get our nation back on track. I will make tough decisions. It’s the type of leadership that has made Indiana best in class over the last decade. It’s the leadership that this country needs. I think I have shown such leadership with my work at the state and now, federal level."
The Porter County Council races (GOP) are still close enough they could go either way.
More Porter County votes in. Now 72% of precincts reporting.
Biggs, Yelton just one vote apart!
Mike Jessen has 99-vote lead over incumbent Jim Polarek.
Jeff Good extends his lead over Nancy Adams.
