Jerry Sutton, Republican voting location manager at Antioch University Midwest in Yellow Springs, points at the 11 am polling location voter list on Election Day.

Voting is underway across the Miami Valley.

Jerry Sutton, the Republican Party voting location manager for the Yellow Springs polling site at Antioch University Midwest, said they’ve had good turnout so far — around 500 people from the five precincts they serve with around 3,800 total registered voters. That doesn’t include people who voted early or by mail.

Scott Bachman is Sutton’s Democratic counterpart. Bachman said they’ve already surpassed the in-person voting total from the August special primary.

Both said lines have been manageable so far.

“I don’t think there’s been a backlog, they haven’t been out the door,” Sutton said. “But it’s been steady.”

To vote, you have to be in line at a polling location by 7:30 pm today.
