Despite concerns about overwhelmed polling places as record numbers of voters are expected to cast ballots, no major problems have been reported in Cuyahoga County. Long lines greeted many poll workers this morning, but the volume dropped considerably during the afternoon. Elections director Jane Platten credits the 270,000 early voters for easing congestion today. But she expects long lines to form this evening before voting wraps up at 7:30.
Platten says anyone still line when the polls officially close will be allowed to vote.
