TerreHauteNews.net asked one life long resident of Terre Haute what he thought about the election. He said he plans to vote early on his day off because it’s easier. He also said that it was great to see new names and new faces in the local elections. “Some other towns seem to always have the same names showing up over and over again for different things”. He’s very glad this area is not like this.
