If you haven’t done so yet, vote

Ordinarily, this space would be used to urge people to go vote. But to be more accurate, we really should encourage voters to cast their ballots – unless they already have done so.

According to the Ohio Secretary of State’s Office, 201,898 Ohioans had voted by absentee ballot – either by mail or in person – as of Saturday. That total includes 532 ballots cast in Seneca County, 645 cast in Sandusky County, 290 in Wyandot County and 629 in Crawford County, according to the office.

Also, three Seneca County residents who are overseas and/or in the military have mailed in ballots.

If you are among the more than 253,000 Ohioans who requested absentee ballots, it’s too late to mail it in, but it can be dropped off at the board of elections office before polls close today.

And if you prefer to vote in person at your precinct today, polls are open 6:30 a.m.-7:30 p.m. Remember to take a proper form of ID with you.

Just remember to vote.
