Early voting numbers continue to soar over weekend before election day

COLUMBUS (WCMH) — Numbers of early votes continued to soar on Sunday, as Election Day is now less than 48 hours away.

Over the weekend, it was announced that Ohio had already surpassed its early voting numbers from 2012’s election with three days left to vote early.

According to officials, by Tuesday’s Election Day, roughly half of the ballots in Franklin County will have been cast.  Other key battleground states, such as Florida and North Carolina, have also reported record-breaking early voting numbers.

According to NBC News, roughly 40 million presidential votes have already been filed across the country, with nearly two million of them coming in Ohio.

The Franklin County Board of Election’s final early voting period will take place on Monday, from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m.
