It's election day! In Erie County the early voting numbers were absolutely insane. Nearly 40% of all registered voters in Erie County turned out to vote early before election day. Now, it certainly helped the lines, but we have already seen some seriously long lines today. Dress for the weather because you are most likely going to be waiting outside for a little because of COVID-19 protocols.
