Ohio's All Important Amish Vote
Daniel Devine, World Magazine
Ohio and Pennsylvania are nearly tied in hosting the largest populations of Amish in the United States, at around 60,000 each. And when votes are counted starting on Tuesday, both states figure to play a deciding role in who becomes the next president of the United States. Thousands of votes are likely to matter.
The largest single settlement of Amish is centered on Holmes County in central Ohio. Sue Ann Miller, a resident of Lakeville, has been living among this community for 28 years. This year she’s been working to bring members of this Christian sect, who dress plainly and live without electricity or automobiles, out to the polls.
