Politics Chat: So Far, So Good For Postal Service And Election Officials In Early Voting

Oct 23, 2020

Over 1.2 million Ohioans have already voted in the Nov. 3 election, both by absentee ballots and in-person early voting at county boards of elections.

It seems that election officials and the U.S. Postal Service are having few problems handling the massive number of early voters.

WVXU Senior Political Analyst Howard Wilkinson spoke with News Director Maryanne Zeleznik about early voting. He says that Democrats are far more likely to use the absentee ballots than Republicans. According to a recent poll, 65% of Ohio Republicans say they plan to vote at their polling places on Nov. 3.
