OHIO: OHIO TURNOUT [Peter W. Schramm 11/02 03:16 PM]
I just returned from voting in Ashland (about 60-40 GOP, and every office holder is Republican and have been for twenty years) and everyone is out there voting. Large turnout, especially among Republicans, in my opinion. This seems to be true state-wide (I talked to a half-dozen people from all around the state.
NixGuy has posted registration figures for all of Ohio. The short of it is this: "In a perfect replay of 2000, If Each county in Ohio voted according to the same percentages
Republican and Democrat With the same turnout figures
Bush gets 157,431 more votes Kerry gets 120,780 more votes than Kerry did.
That makes for a 37,000 vote advantage which would increase Bush's margin of 166,000 to over 200,000."
