You can still vote early today until 2 p.m.

Election Day is tomorrow, but you can still vote early today.

Your county board of elections office is open for voters today until 2 p.m.

Absentee voting is running higher than in the 2014 midterm elections but voter turnout was just below 41 percent that year and Democrat Ed FitzGerald, who proved to be a flawed candidate, lost in a landslide to Republican incumbent Gov. John Kasich.

This year’s governor’s race with Republican Mike DeWine and Richard Cordray is a statistical tie in the polls and one of the most expensive in the nation.

Ohio began early and no excuse absentee voting in 2008.

On the ballot this year are statewide races for governor, U.S. Senate, Ohio Supreme Court, attorney general, auditor, secretary of state and treasurer as well as Congressional offices, state legislative posts and 1,661 local issues.

Early in-person voting is open at all county boards of elections offices at the following hours:

* 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. now until Friday;

* 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday;

* 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday;

* 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. Monday.

On Election Day, the polls will be open 6:30 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. Tuesday.
