Midterm and off-year elections are notorious for low voter participation. But the November 6 election could tell a different story. Some polls indicate a high level of interest among voters who identify with both parties. This year, Republican and Democratic voters will decide several close Ohio races for U.S. House and Senate seats.

As of October, more than 900,000 early absentee ballots were requested across the state of Ohio. Another 34,000 voters have already cast ballots in person at their local boards of elections.
