Early voting was pushed by the Clinton campaign, which encouraged voters to line up early to cast their votes.

"The Clinton campaign has people camping out overnight to vote like they're waiting for the new iPhone, but these gimmicks are just meant to distract from the low-energy for her candidacy among regular Ohio voters," said the Seth Unger, Ohio Communications Director for the Trump campaign, in a statement. "Our campaign will be using every day of early and absentee voting to get out our voters, culminating in an Election Day win for Mr. Trump."
