Today marks busiest early-voting day in the Valley

Staff report

YOUNGSTOWN

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.

What happened to Election DAY? I think it is wrong to have so many days to vote. The polls are open 6:30AM to 7:30pm people should be able to make it between those times. The only people that should be able to do absentee ballots are shut-ins.

maggie,

Do you realize how many people travel for work and are not in town on election day? Many jobs, such as nursing work 12 hour days. 7am-7pm. When are they to vote?

It’s clear Ohio will play a pivotal role in this election. Just keep this in mind when thinking about the “growth” we’ve seen under the current administration. The number of people on food stamps has grown from 33 million to 46 million. Another four years of that growth would give us 66 million – a staggering 20% of the US population -- on food stamps. We have entered a food stamp economy, not a growth and jobs economy.
