It looks like more than 1.4 million Ohioans are taking advantage of the opportunity to vote early.  More than one point two million have requested absentee ballots so they can vote by mail.  But, at this point, only about a fifth of those voters have returned those mail-in ballots.  More than 280,000 absentee ballots have been mailed back to boards of elections. More than 124,000 Ohioans have cast an absentee ballot in person at local boards of elections or designated early vote centers. Franklin County leads in the number of in ballots cast that way.  More than 12,000 people have voted in person there and more than 42,000 have returned paper ballots by mail.  More than 235,000 mail-in ballots have been requested in Cuyahoga County.  Of those, more than 50,000 have been returned.  And more than 11,000 have voted early, in person in that county so far.
