President Barack Obama to campaign for Indiana Democratic candidates at early vote rally in Gary on Sunday

GARY, Ind. – At the invitation of the Indiana Democratic Party, former President Barack Obama will hold an early vote rally in Gary on Sunday to rally support for Joe Donnelly and Democratic candidates up and down the ticket, the IDP announced today.

President Obama will hold his rally this Sunday, November 4, at the Genesis Convention Center in Gary. The rally is intended to encourage Hoosiers to vote early and recruit supporters for Election Day volunteer shifts for the Indiana Democratic Coordinated Campaign. The coordinated campaign has offices across the state and has built the largest mid-term Democratic field operation in Indiana’s history.

Doors open for this event at 12:00 p.m. CT. Physical tickets are required for entry. Hoosiers will be able to pick up their free tickets on a first come first serve basis at several locations in the Region and across the state beginning tomorrow. A full list of sites and times for ticket distribution is included below; Hoosiers unable to make it to any of those sites in person can request alternative ticket pickup at INDems.org/Obama. Tickets will not be available at will call or on site the day of the event.

“It’s an honor to invite President Obama back to Indiana to fire up thousands of Hoosiers and get them out to vote early, knock doors, and elect Democrats up and down the ticket this coming Tuesday,” said Indiana Democratic Party Chair John Zody. “President Obama is a reminder of the positive change each and every one of us can make if we work together to move our country forward, and we couldn’t be more excited to have him get out the vote less than two days before a crucial midterm election.”
