CLEVELAND – It was almost like Black Friday for politics.
Election day may still a few weeks away, but some Northeast Ohio voters spent the night camping out to be among the first to cast their ballots early.
WKYC’s Tiffany Tarpley was outside the Cuyahoga County Board of Elections early Wednesday morning where numerous people set up tents and bundled up so they could be the first to vote.
Doors opened at 8 a.m.
A group of Hillary Clinton’s supporters joined the early voting bandwagon by walking from her campaign office in Cleveland complete with a marching band to the Board of Elections.
Seth Unger, an official with the Donald Trump campaign in Ohio, called the early morning campout a distraction.
"The Clinton campaign has people camping out overnight to vote like they're waiting for the new iPhone, but these gimmicks are just meant to distract from the low-energy for her candidacy among regular Ohio voters," Unger said in a statement. "Our campaign will be using every day of early and absentee voting to get out our voters, culminating in an Election Day win for Mr. Trump."
Early voting runs through Monday, Nov. 7 with the general election taking place Tuesday, Nov. 8.
