People stand in line at the Hamilton County Board of Elections to participate in early voting, Tuesday, Oct. 6, 2020, in Norwood.

After another long campaign season, Election Day is finally here. In Southwest Ohio, voter turnout could reach 75-82%, setting records.

Today on Cincinnati Edition, we check in at the polls to see what's happening as voters choose the next president and local leaders. Plus, an election security expert and a former Kentucky secretary of state are with us to discuss what to look out for as the ballots are counted.

Joining the show are WVXU reporter Cory Sharber; Truth and Destiny Covenant Ministries Pastor and 2017 Cincinnati City Council Candidate Pastor Lesley Jones, who is serving as a "Peacekeeper" at the polls; Ohio Voter Rights Coalition Poll Monitor and Regional Coordinator for Hamilton County Zach Ratzman; Frost Brown Todd Member and Former Republican Kentucky Secretary of State Trey Grayson; and University of Cincinnati Political Science Department Head Richard Harknett, Ph.D.
