The deadline for voters to register in the state of Ohio has passed and the data indicates the number of registered voters is less than the pervious 2008 election.
Millions of Ohio residents are officially set to cast their ballot in the upcoming general elections, but that number is still down from the last Presidential election.
According to researchers roughly 7.9 million Ohioans are registered to vote, which is down from the total of 8.2 million who were registered in 2008.
Secretary of State Jon Husted says as of Friday more than one million people have applied for an absentee ballot to vote by mail and another 13,000 military and overseas absentee ballot have been requested.
More than 59,000 Ohioans already cast a ballot in person.
