Nearly 122K Ohioans have voted early in primary

Posted: Updated:
COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Nearly 122,000 Ohioans have voted early so far in the state's primary election next month.

Secretary of State Jon Husted says 121,826 residents cast absentee ballots as of Friday, while 182,926 ballots have been requested since the early voting period began for most on April 1. Absentee voting for military and overseas voters started March 22.

The election includes same-party candidate contests, a statewide ballot issue and about 600 local issues.

The deadline to request an early ballot is noon on Saturday. Ohioans can vote absentee without giving any reason.

Voted ballots that are mailed must be postmarked by May 5 and received by May 16. Election boards also will accept them until polls close May 6. They cannot be returned at polling places.
