Election 2022: Tri-State races could decide balance of power in Congress
CINCINNATI (WXIX) - It’s decision day in the 2022 midterm election.
The balance of power in Congress is up for grabs. National polls have Republicans likely retaking the House and gaining control of the Senate, but surprises are possible in Ohio and elsewhere.
Absentee ballot turnout in Ohio has been high. Voters set new all-time records in the statewide Gubernatorial race with more than 1.5 million Ohioans requesting an absentee ballot or voting early. The count is up 3.9 percent over the previous record set in 2018.
Ohio Secretary of State Frank LaRose said he still expects “particularly strong turnout.”
Meanwhile, long-lines were reported Tuesday afternoon at polling locations across Northern Kentucky. Voters said they waited two hours in Erlanger, Edgewood and Villa Hills.
