Today marks busiest early-voting day in the Valley

Staff report


Today was “without a doubt the busiest day of the election season so far” for voters in Mahoning County, elections board member Dave Betras said Sunday night.

The last weekend day for early voting also was the busiest day of voting so far for the Trumbull County Board of Elections, one worker said.

“It’s the only time I have. For me, it is [the best time to vote] because I work,” said Rosalyn Penn of Warren.

It took about 40 minutes for voters to get through the process on Saturday, but it was closer to 70 minutes on Sunday, said Rocky Vadala, a door worker at the Trumbull elections board.

It was much less than 40 minutes most weekdays since early voting began, but the pace has been steady, Vadala said.

Early voting concludes at boards of elections Monday from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. Polls in Ohio are open Tuesday 6:30 a.m. to 7:30 p.m.
