Bill Clinton to 'get out the vote' in Indiana

Free tickets are available from the Indiana Democratic Party.

Clinton will speak at the Friday rally, which starts at 10:30 a.m. at the gymnasium at North Central High School in Indianapolis.

Hoosiers can sign up for free tickets at www.indems.org/PresidentClinton. One ticket available per registration. Ticket registration will close at noon on Thursday. Tickets will be available for pickup at Indiana Democratic Party coordinated campaign field offices Wednesday and Thursday.
