CLEVELAND - About a thousand people took advantage of early voting in Cuyahoga County on Wednesday and 1,800 people showed up on Tuesday.
With the presidential debates set to start at 9 p.m., we asked some of the early voters that headed into the Cuyahoga Board of Elections why they still plan to watch the debate.
"To confirm my position," said Wally Kaplan, who voted for President Barack Obama. "My mind has been made up for quite some time.”
"People need to hear what the candidates are actually saying verses 10 second snippets that come from some talking head,” said John Urbank, who didn’t reveal who received his vote.
Christopher Coleman came to vote early so he could get it out of the way. He felt the debate is not going to sway him either way.
"I think I have been following these candidates long enough that their position is not going to change tonight,” Coleman said.
The debate between former governor Mitt Romney and president Barak Obama will have no opening statements. It will have six, 15-minute segments focusing on domestic issues.
PBS NewsHour anchor Jim Lehrer will moderate and it will be his discretion when to move on.
Romney won a coin toss so he will be the last one to speak in a closing statement. USA Today is expecting upwards of 60 million people watching across the country.
