With the betting odds, polling data and FiveThirtyEight’s model projecting this to be a close race, the results could be pivotal in determining who wins the electoral college. With 18 of the 538 total electoral votes, Ohio has the fifth-most electoral votes in the country.

Trump’s 2016 win in Ohio was his second-largest margin of victory among states that had voted for Barack Obama in 2012 but flipped to vote for Trump. He ended up winning 304 of the electoral college votes that election compared to Hillary Clinton’s 227.

Ohio has correctly voted for the winner of every presidential election since 1964.
