There should be plenty of ballots to count when the election polls close tonight at 7:30.
Summit County Board of Elections Director Ron Koehler says there are plenty of indications that voter turnout will be high.
"We're hearing reports from our troubleshooters that are out there and our booth workers who are calling us that turnout is very good today," said Koehler at around 2:30 p.m.
He says up to 15% of registered voters had already cast ballots in New Franklin and Green "by mid-morning."
AkronNewsNow reported earlier today that a higher-than-usual number of voters had checked in at precincts in Akron Wards 1 and 8.
At Fairlawn Lutheran Church, elections workers say they had lines occasionally this morning, but it had calmed down after lunch.
Turnout also seemed unusually high in the Woodridge and Nordonia Hills School Districts, where voters are determining additional operating levies as well as some precincts in Norton.
Koehler says there have been a "few minor problems" that were all quickly resolved by the board's 23-member team of troubleshooters.
