INDIANAPOLIS (Indiana's NewsCenter) - Months of negative campaigning between Republican Dan Coats and Democrat Brad Ellsworth ends as voters make their choice for Indiana’s open U.S. Senate seat.

Coats voted this morning, in Indianapolis and Ellsworth, voted early.

Both say despite the outcome the will of the people will be heard.

Coats says, “The crowds are two three four times what they use to be. People are engaged that is democracy in action I think it is very healthy.”

Ellsworth says, “Tonight by 9 o'clock we'll probably know. People will decide today, a lady just walked out and said I sure hope you win, and that is the encouragement you need.”

In the latest Mike Downs poll Coats was leading Ellsworth 54- 32 percent.
