COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Early voting has begun in Ohio.

Residents could begin casting ballots Tuesday morning in the fall election after the U.S. Supreme Court ruled in a dispute over the swing state’s voting schedule.

Voters can pick their choices for the next governor along with other statewide officeholders in the Nov. 4 election. Also up for a vote are a number of legislative races and more than 1,600 local issues.

Ohioans can cast an absentee ballot by mail or in person. More than 650,000 voters have already requested absentee ballots.

The start of early voting had shifted amid a lawsuit over two election-related measures.
