Columbus -

Early voting begins Tuesday morning in a key battleground state for the Presidential candidates.

Residents of the Buckeye State can cast their early ballots Tuesday by mail or in person for the Nov. 6 election without giving a reason.

This election is the first time absentee ballot applications have been mailed to every registered voter statewide.

Secretary of State Jon Husted says that more than 922,000 people have applied so far for an absentee ballot. About 30 percent of Ohio's total vote, or roughly 1.7 million ballots, came in ahead of Election Day in 2008.
