As of Nov. 3, which is five days before Election Day, nearly 44,500 Butler County residents have voted early, either by mail or at the Princeton Road office. That’s a near 2,000 vote difference over four years ago.
Elections officials anticipate about 2,000 people voting early today and about 1,500 on Sunday.
Voters casting a ballot by mail must return their ballots with a postmark dated no later than Nov. 7. Voters may also bring their ballot to the Board of Elections office by 7:30 p.m. on Election Day this Tuesday.
Locals in campaign ads
The pro-Hillary Clinton organization Local Voices re-launched two television ads hitting the area featuring Butler County and Warren County residents. Both are Republicans.
The television ad featuring West Chester Twp. resident Joan Powell, a former Lakota school board member, just in Butler County, while the ad featuring Franklin resident James Stepp will be featured in Warren, Tuscarawas, Medina, Mahoning, Wood, Trumbull and Fairfield counties.
The organization reports it had produced 22 ad spots which cost the group $1.5 million.
