But this year, things are slightly different. The county clerk says an increase in absentee and early voting is the reason. Over the past decade, there has been a dip in voting later in the day.
Many places see a lot of their voting in the morning, like Clark Lindsey, in Urbana. It needed extra booths delivered because of turnout. It was a pleasant surprise for the county.
What shouldn't be a surprise is how long it takes to calculate the vote. About 20,000 - 25,000 voters are expected to cast ballots.
