Nov. 3 is a big day in a handful of places in Indiana, though the importance may not be reflected if the trend of dismally low voter turnout continues this municipal election year.
Throughout the state, there are very few competitive races for mayor, and few incumbent mayors are expected to be defeated.

On the heels of celebrating Back to the Future Day, it seems only appropriate to paraphrase Dr. Emmett Brown while also looking at a few of the predictions that the celebrated movie series didn't quite get right. No, we aren't traveling to work on our hover boards quite yet, and the Cubs fell just short of that elusive World Series title (there's always next year, Cubs fans). But from a public policy perspective, since we haven't quite perfected the flying DeLorean, we are still going to need roads to get us where we are going. And how we pay for those roads is one of the major issues facing Hoosier lawmakers as we look toward the 2016 Session of the Indiana General Assembly.

A little less "in your face" (at least for the moment) than the 2016 presidential candidate hopefuls headlining every news source are the U.S. Senate and House of Representatives candidates who are also gearing up for the November 2016 elections. Incumbent Republican Senator Dan Coats, who previously served in the Senate from 1989 to 1999 and has currently been serving since 2011, announced in March of this year that he would not run for re-election. This caused a bit of a frenzy in the local political world, as rumors ran rampant on who would run for Coats' seat and what possible openings his departure may leave in the U.S. House of Representatives and across the state. Currently there are six candidates, four Republicans and two Democrats.
