CLEVELAND — As we approach Election Day, it appears more Americans are making their voices heard at the ballot box than ever before.

The number of U.S. citizens and Ohioans voting early in this election has already surpassed any previous year on record

Whether or not that will lead to an increase in overall voter turnout remains to be seen, but it's clear people are particularly keen on making their voices heard this time around, particularly in the presidential race between Republican incumbent Donald Trump and Democratic nominee Joe Biden.
