LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WAVE) - Hundreds came out to the polls to vote in Indiana’s primary election Tuesday.

The polls were open from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m.

One of the races on the ballot in Floyd County included New Albany mayor, Jeff Gahan. He faced another Democratic opponent, Dylan Rash.

Gahan won with 1,213 votes against Rash, who only earned 322 votes.

“I want to thank all the voters for coming out today. I appreciate your support very much and it was good to catch up with many of you at the polls,” Gahan said. “The City of New Albany is in good financial shape, and we are seeing lots of both public and private investment in our River City. I am looking forward to seeing and listening to many more residents this summer, as we do our best to keep New Albany moving full steam ahead.”

He will face Republican State Representative Edward Clere in the general election in November. Clere ran unopposed in Tuesday’s primaries.
