Though it's unlikely that a hurricane would cause enough damage in Indiana to disrupt Election Day, Indiana's Secretary of State Office is reminding voters that the state does have back-up plans if something goes wrong at the polls.

A guide has been issued to election officials across the state, detailing what to do in case of an emergency like fire or flood. Alternate polling places are set up. Plus there are extra ballots and machines available in case something malfunctions.

All officials are prepared with a list of best contacts to deal with any situation.
