COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) – Ohioans can start casting ballots Tuesday in the fall election after the U.S. Supreme Court ruled in a dispute over the swing state’s voting schedule.
2 NEWS checked on the turnout in Montgomery County. Elections workers said 73 people in the county voted early as of noon Tuesday.
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.
The start of early voting had shifted amid a lawsuit over two election-related measures.
A federal judge temporarily blocked a Republican-backed law. His ruling lengthened the early voting schedule and moved the start of early voting to Sept. 30.
But a later ruling from the Supreme Court returned the start to Tuesday, following a request from state officials.
