Election season is well under way! Early voting in Ohio started October 2 and continues until Election Day on November 6 (click here for a list of early voting hours). The final presidential debate is scheduled for this coming Monday, October 22. And Wednesday night Ohio University received a visit from President Barack Obama, the first sitting president to visit campus since Lyndon Johnson in 1964 (read more about famous visitors to OU & Athens over at the OU Digital Initiatives Pinterest).
