Both parties have made big pushes for Tuesday's local election in Fort Wayne, where Democratic Mayor Tom Henry is seeking a fourth term leading the state's second-largest city against Republican business executive Tim Smith.

Democratic Indianapolis Mayor Joe Hogsett is facing Republican state Sen. Jim Merritt, but Hogsett has a huge fundraising advantage and GOP Gov. Eric Holcomb left Merritt off a 10-city tour to boost mayoral candidates.

Republicans also are targeting races in Muncie and Kokomo where Democratic mayors aren't seeking reelection.

A referendum in Vigo County will decide whether a new casino can be built in Terre Haute.

There are no state or federal offices up for grabs.
