Update From The Field: Ohio

Kathy Keller, state Communications Director for AARP Ohio sends the following note this morning:
Since we fell back into Eastern Standard Time on Sunday, dawn was beginning to glow as polls opened at 6:30 this morning. Weather forecasters across the state are calling for mostly sunny skies and temperatures to reach the 70s.
County boards of elections are reporting that a quarter to a third of registered voters already have cast their ballots. Ohio's Secretary of State is predicting that 80 percent of the state's registered voters will cast ballots in this election.
Polls remain open until 7:30 p.m. today, and poll workers have been instructed to allow anyone waiting in line at that hour to vote before closing.
