Vigo County, Indiana, the celebrated bellwether that has called the presidential vote more accurately than any other county in modern history, is going strongly for Obama. With 91 percent of precincts reporting, Obama has a 56 to 43 percent lead.
GOVERNING Politics is the place for news and analysis on campaigns and elections. If there's a ballot measure in California, a legislative election in Alabama, a mayoral election in Anchorage or a governor's race in Rhode Island, GOVERNING Politics probably is writing about it. We love everything about state and local politics, from polls and campaign ads to policy debates and demographic trends.
