The 1996 United States presidential election in Indiana took place on November 5, 1996 throughout all 50 states and D.C.. Voters chose 12 representatives, or electors to the Electoral College, who voted for President and Vice President.
Indiana was won by Senator Bob Dole (R-KS). The presidential contest in Indiana was not a surprise, with Dole winning 47.13% to 41.55% over President Bill Clinton (D) by a margin of 5.58%. Billionaire businessman Ross Perot (Reform Party of the United States of America-TX) finished in third with a significant 10.50% of the popular vote in Indiana. Indiana would stay a Republican state until 2008, in which Barack Obama won by a close margin, the first Democratic victory in Indiana since 1964.
