Ohio voters broke an all-time record for early voting in the statewide Gubernatorial General Election, and it appears William County broke a record as well. Ohio Secretary of State Frank LaRose announced Tuesday that 1.5 million Ohioans requested an absentee ballot or cast their ballot early in-person. This is an increase of 3.9% over the previous record set in 2018. Data includes all ballots received and processed through 2 p.m. on Monday afternoon. The total includes 1,823 by mail, 2,024 in person, 22 hand delivered, 22 cast at local nursing homes and 23 via the Uniformed And Overseas Citizens Absentee Voting Act. Early voting accounted for about 15% of the county’s 25,134 total registered voters. Williams County had 12,969 of its 25,134 registered voters turnout for the election, or 51.6 percent.
