Absentee Ballots Already Opened in Ohio

Election workers have already started the long process of opening the thousands of absentee ballots that have flowed in for this month's election, the Columbus Dispatch reports.

"The envelopes containing the ballots are opened facedown so that workers don't know the name of the voter. The ballots then must be fed into optical scanners that read the darkened ovals next to candidates' names and other ballot items."
