About five million more people voted in the 2008 Presidential elections than in the 2004 elections.

While Indiana was a swing state in the 2008 Presidential election, political analysts indicate the state is likely to return to its historical trend of voting Republican.

This week on Noon Edition, we’ll talk with elections officials and political analysts about how voter turnout for the Presidential election could affect other Indiana races, including the race for the Senate.
