FORT WAYNE, Ind. (Indiana's NewsCenter) - After months of campaigning and countless ads, Election Day is here.

One of the many issues we're tracking today is voter turnout.

Voter turnout numbers were expected to be huge across the country and most precincts did not disappoint. Here in Allen County with a population of nearly a quarter of a million people 38.5 percent of registered voters hit the polls. The Allen County Election Board prepared for a 50 percent voter turnout and Hoosiers in Allen County nearly reached that mark.

Over the next couple of days voter turnout numbers are sure to change. All results on elections, issues and turnouts will remain unofficial with updates to come.

The Northeast region saw high turnouts in other places like Whitley County which saw nearly 51 percent voter turnout. Steuben saw more than 52 percent of its votes at the polls. Forty-two percent hit the Huntington County polls, nearly 44 percent in Kosciusko County and more than 42 percent in Dekalb County, 46 percent in Blackford County. Wabash County had 42 percent of voters show at the polls and Grant County with 32 percent.

Adams County saw a huge turnout today of 55 percent of its registered voters and Wells County residents hit the polls as well with 56 percent of registered voters casting ballots.
