It's been a big night for Republicans so far in Indiana. They've taken the governor's seat, along with the U.S. Senate spot, the superintendent position and several other key races.

We're starting to see some early returns come in. No surprises so far, with Donald Trump projected to win Indiana, Kentucky and West Virginia, and Hillary Clinton winning Vermont. See those results here.

5:14 p.m.

We talked to voters in several central Indiana counties and they're all eager for this election to be over! Check out the story here.

No major issues reported at Marion County polling places. Over 400 people are counting absentee ballots today.

1:32 p.m.

We're looking into reports of a "two-minute" limit at polling places in Indiana.

One WTHR viewer tells us: "At the Osprey Pointe Pavilion voting site in Noblesville, there were signs posted about the time limit and only once in the 45 minutes that I was in line did an election worker come out and explain the time limit and that if anyone needed help reading through the ballot in that time, they needed to fill out an affidavit prior to getting into the booth. Once someone get's into the booth, it was too late to request help, he said. The election worker also warned that there were 5 pages on the ballot so we had to read quick."

The voter explained that he'd prepared by previewing his sample ballot already - but it still took him over three minutes to vote. "So I'm fortunate that while my polling location was warning people of the time limit, they were not enforcing it. Seems to me to be a bit discriminatory towards those that can't read quickly, have a lower education level, or have dyslexia since there were no signs about the required affidavit for help and the only mention of it was the single verbal announcement."
