The Vote Begins In OH

Long lines developed early and stayed that way at election boards…as early voting is underway in Ohio. Hundreds waited outside board offices in Cincinnati, Columbus and Cleveland. Several elections officials statewide noted unusually heavy turnout. In Columbus, the line snaked about a quarter-mile along the front and around the back of the Franklin County Board of Elections on the city’s north side. It hasn’t been smooth, either, officials say. In Columbus, as well, county voters received the wrong absentee ballots in the mail. They say a setting in some of the board’s software was disabled, resulting in the wrong ballots going into envelopes. The extent of the problem still isn’t clear. Voting in the Cincinnati area was taking place in a voting center that twice the size of the usual location. Disinfectants and masks were offered to voters…with 6-feet spacing, marked for lines.
