When & where to vote in the Indiana primary.
The polls opened at 6:00 AM — both Eastern and Central time, as the state is caught up in two time zones, according to Time And Date. The polls will close at 6:00 P.M., so Indiana voters better get to the right polling place in time. After all, 57 GOP delegates and 83 democratic delegates are up for grabs.

What to bring to vote.
First off, if a voter hasn’t registered to vote in the state’s primary, they’ll have to wait until the general election in November. However, registered voters can make their pick, so long as they bring a driver’s license or an ID card, according to CBS. The state’s DMV will even be open late to help people get the proper identification.
When can we expect the results?
With polls closing at 6:00 P.M., the results should come in around then, if not much later. After all, Donald currently leads the Republican race, according to CNN. He goes into this vote 15 points ahead of Ted, and 36 points ahead of John Kasich, 63. On the other side of the aisle, Hillary is four points ahead of Bernie. However that lead might evaporate in the final hours. Of course, HollywoodLife.com will have all the results so we’ll let you know who takes home the win.
Hillary’s campaign didn’t air a single television ad in Indiana, according to CNN, and she held only a single rally in the state. Meanwhile, Bernie has “spent a million dollars in Indiana,” Hillary’s spokesman Brian Fallon said, adding that Indiana “demographically… resembles very closely a lot of the states where he has had his biggest wins.” After the Michigan upset and his run of caucus victories, Hill’s camp is keeping expectations low in the Midwest.
Hillary is currently at 2,165 delegates, while Bernie is at 1,357. A win in Indiana wouldn’t give Hill the 218 she needs to clinch the party nomination. However, if Trump triumphs over Ted and John, adding to his 996 delegates, he could deliver the knockout blow to his Republican rivals.
