  • GWEN IFILL:

    Election day in Indiana and North Carolina all was over but the voting and the last-minute face time.

    SEN. BARACK OBAMA (D), Illinois: Thank you very much.

  • GWEN IFILL:

    Both Democratic candidates began their days in Indiana, Barack Obama at a restaurant in Greenwood…

  • SEN. BARACK OBAMA:

    That was a very good omelet. I recommend it, guys, the house omelet.

  • GWEN IFILL:

    … and Hillary Clinton at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. Both were working hard to leave final impressions.

  • SEN. BARACK OBAMA:

    I feel good. I think we've campaigned hard and well in this state. And I've met wonderful people, like this gentleman right here.

    And I think it's going to be close. I think it's going to be close. I don't think anybody really knows exactly what's going to happen.

  • GWEN IFILL:

    Clinton appeared with race car driver Sarah Fisher.

    SEN. HILLARY CLINTON (D), New York: To use a good driving analogy, if you want to go forward, you put it in "D." If you want to go backwards, you put it in "R."

    We're going to vote Democratic, and we're going to win in November. We're going to take this country back.

    And I'm here to see — you know, Sarah, who is a trailblazer, has done so much for this sport. And I'm thrilled to have her personal support and I'm here to show her my personal support.

    SARAH FISHER, Indy Series driver: Just so you know, we don't have a reverse in this car.

  • GWEN IFILL:

    Both candidates are competing to boost turnout among voters most likely to tip a competitive balance.

  • SEN. BARACK OBAMA:

    Any people still undecided here? Because I want to work on you. All right.

  • GWEN IFILL:

    Voters in both states cast ballots in record numbers today, in part because the extended campaign gave them a chance to affect the outcome.

  • VOTER:

    We don't hear from Indiana as often, so I'm excited that we have a chance to be part of the decisions here.

  • VOTER:

    It's so important for North Carolina to have an opportunity to speak loud and clear about not being satisfied with the way things are. And we want a change.
