Ohio's Secretary Of State Says Over 383,000 Absentee Ballots Cast

Ohio Secretary of State's Office

Ohio Secretary of State Jon Husted says more than 383,000 of the nearly 484,000 absentee ballots requested in this year's general election have been cast as voters head to the polls.

Husted said an informal survey of Ohio's 88 county boards of election as of Tuesday morning showed the majority of the absentee ballots cast were returned by mail and the rest in person.

Husted said there was still time to drop off absentee ballots. Voted ballots can be delivered in person to boards of elections through the close of the polls Tuesday. They may not be returned at polling locations.

Polls close at 7:30 p.m.
