State officials say that is not unusual in what is considered "off-year elections".
Early voting is well underway in Ohio, but the numbers don't seem to show that too many people are taking advantage.
It's not uncommon to see voter turnout in off-year elections drop. There are no statewide issues like there were in 2011 or 2009 and no statewide races. So, should the early voting period on off-year elections be shortened? Ohio Secretary of State Jon Husted doesn't think so.
This election hinges on local races and issues. Big races mean big turnout. Husted also points out that there isn't nearly the get out the vote effort in off-year elections.
