In The Region:

Early in-person voting ends at 2 today (Monday), and county boards of elections saw lines of voters streaming in throughout the weekend. But even before that, more than 20 percent of Ohio’s registered voters had already cast their ballots. WKSU’s M.L. Schultze spoke with some of them.

Ohio’s Secretary of State Jon Husted says some 1.6 million ballots had been cast of as of Friday – more than a million by mail and a half a million when voters showed up in-person at county boards of elections.

And some people did both, showing up at boards of election with their mail-in absentee ballots to be absolutely sure they arrived in time.

Others, like Carl and Terry Dominico of Stark County are mixed couples.

 “Absentee, I do it all the time.”

“She tries to talk me into it. But, I just, I don’t know why I’m leery of it but I am. That’s why I usually vote regular, but I decided to come down to the board of elections and vote today.”

Mail-in absentee ballots must be postmarked by today and arrive by Nov. 16 to be counted. Regular voting hours begin at 6:30 tomorrow morning, and polls remain open until 7:30 p.m.

Ohio has about 7.7 million voters.
