INDIANAPOLIS — Indiana voters are heading to the polls to help determine whether presidential hopeful Mitt Romney puts the state back in the Republican column.

Romney is expected to win Indiana, possibly by double digits, four years after President Barack Obama gave Democrats their first Indiana presidential victory since 1964.

Thirty-four-year-old Indianapolis software salesman Joe Reece was among about 20 people waiting in line when the polls opened at 6 a.m. EST Tuesday at a church on Indianapolis' north side. He says he voted for Romney based strictly on the former Massachusetts governor's ideas for boosting the nation's weak economy.

Forty-two-year-old Bernadette Hatcher arrived at that same church to vote after finishing her overnight shift at a warehouse. She voted Obama and says the president needs more time to pursue his initiatives.
