The Ohio Secretary of State's office says more than 1.3 million people voted ahead of Tuesday's election.

The total far outpaces the number of votes cast early statewide four years ago.

Officials say through Monday nearly 885,000 absentee ballots had been received by mail statewide and that 430,000 people voted early in person.

This total compares with around 719,000 people mailing in ballots in 2014 and 146,000 people voting early in person for a total of about 865,000.

Just over 1 million votes were cast early in 2010.

The total number of votes cast statewide in 2014 was 3.1 million compared with nearly 4 million in 2010.

Around 8 million Ohioans are registered to vote.
