"More than half of the registered voters in crucial Cuyahoga County had cast ballots by 2:30 p.m., and Democratic Party officials were hoping to push that number significantly higher to get President Obama the edge he needs in Ohio.The article says totals include EVs and today's turnout. In 2008, Obama won Ohio with the help of a 61 percent turnout in Cuyahoga.
"Despite widespread fears of polling problems in one of Obama’s key strongholds, voting has gone on without snags throughout the day, according to elections officials. There were a handful of problems with paper ballots not entering electronic voting machines correctly, but those have been corrected without any lost votes."
“When this gets north of 60 [percent], I’ll breathe a little easier,” said county Democratic Chairman Stuart Garson. “I’d like to see it cross 70” percent.
POLLS CLOSE 7:30 pm Eastern.
