Lake County Indiana's Early Voting Upheld

The Indiana Supreme Court rejected an appeal to close early voting centers in a populous northern county.
The Indiana Supreme Court denied an appeal by Republicans in Lake County, Indiana, who sought to close some early voting centers before Election Day.

The Progress Illinois blog predicted this would be the Indiana high court's ruling, which means voters in the cities of Gary, Hammond and East Chicago will be able to continue to vote before November 4.
