The race for GOP Senate candidate between Todd Rokita, Luke Messer and Mike Braun is the state of Indiana’s biggest race on this Primary Day 2018, but there are several local races to be decided upon, as well.

It’s surprise to many, as 2nd District U.S. Representative Jackie Walorski has a GOP challenger in Mark Summe on the ballot.

Summe is a doctoral candidate at the University of Notre Dame and has not actively campaigned. On the Democratic side, there are six names hoping to unseat Walorski in November, but only Yatish Joshi, Mel Hall and Pat Hackett have actively campaigned.

Republicans Chris Rager, Kyle Dukes, Tony Ciriello, and William “Rocky” Goshert all hope to take the spot of top cop in Kosciusko County. Whoever is chosen in the primary will become Sheriff because there are no Democrats running.

Kimberly Cates faces Republican incumbent Curt Nisly for state Representative in District 22.

Polls in Indiana are open from 6 a.m. until 6 p.m. All voters must bring photo identification.
