INDIANAPOLIS — Indiana’s Libertarian candidate for governor has cast his ballot for Tuesday’s election from the Indianapolis hospital where he’s being treated for a minor stroke.

Rex Bell voted Friday from his room at IU Health Methodist Hospital, where he was transferred after falling ill Wednesday in Richmond.

The 64-year-old Bell, his family and Libertarian Party members worried he might not return to his Hagerstown home in time to vote Tuesday.

But The (Richmond) Palladium-Item reports (http://pinews.co/2fOAGx8 ) the Wayne County Election Board voted unanimously to send a traveling voting board to Indianapolis to allow Bell to vote.

Fellow gubernatorial candidates Republican Eric Holcomb and Democrat John Gregg have both said they are praying for Bell’s recovery.

Campaign manager Jeremiah Morrell says Bell is doing well and is expected to fully recover.
