From the start, Ohio has been a critical state in the presidential election.

With Election Day upon the battleground state, officials expected long lines at the poll as Ohioans gather to cast their ballots for the historic race. As many as 300 people waited in line for their chance to vote early at the Morse Road location Monday morning.

The day brings an end to an intense battle between presidential candidates Barack Obama and Mitt Romney, who clocked many hours seeking the swing state's 18 electoral votes.

An estimated $200 million have been spent on advertisements used to influence voters.

However, there is the possibility that the race between Democratic President Barack Obama and Republican Mitt Romney could be too close to call before Wednesday or left hanging while provisional ballots are counted in the days ahead.

Elections officials and both sides were preparing for voting challenges after a series of earlier court cases over Ohio voting this year.

The polls open at 6:30 a.m. and close at 7:30 p.m.
