Early in-person voting begins tomorrow (Tuesday) in Ohio, at the same time county board of elections are preparing to mail out hundreds of thousands of mail-in ballots. For Ohio Public Radio, WKSU’s M.L. Schultze has more on the big demands of an upcoming big election.
As absentee results come in, Montgomery County board of elections official Steve Harsman assures voters their ballot will be counted
"First and foremost, anyone who voted early or by absentee, if their ballot was eligable to be counted, it will be included in that total. There's a myth by a lot of voters in the public and the media that those ballots are only counted if the race is close, and in fact, it's the opposite. It's the first set of results and the ballots that we count first," says Harsman.
