    ...early in-person voting in Ohio, that is.

    Something else may have started, too: a possible harbinger of the sort of dirty tactics we've seen in past elections in this state ('00 and '04 to name a couple). My wife (a substitute teacher) and I (a professional driver) took time off on Tuesday and headed to our county's Board of Elections Office in order to vote. When we got there, though, we were politely told that the regular ballots had been delayed due to the recent wording changes ordered by the Court WRT Issue 2, that we'd have to cast our votes via something called a "proof ballot" , and that this method of voting would include a process called "remaking" (in which the proof would later be transferred to a regular ballot in the presence of at least one Republican and one Democrat). Needless to say, we decided to leave and live to vote another day, preferably after the regular ballots have made it there safely.

    On the bright side, my call to John Husted's office was readily answered and the issue was resolved in just a few hours, though I can't help but wonder how many people were (or will be) persuaded statewide to cast their votes by some means other than the regular ballot ...and whether the added complications will effect the outcome of the election in Ohio...

    Well, I'm happy to report: we made it back to the Perry County BoE on Friday and voted along the (Democrat) party line all the way down our respective tickets.

    Here's to the hope that our efforts have bolstered the quest to overcome the onslaught on fairness that's been shamelessly carried out by Ohio's Republican leaders.

    Time will tell...

    Thank you for voting in spite of the Ohio GOP. Amazing to see the GOP attempting to abridge the most basic right in this nation.

    Thank you, Old Rocks, for seeing the GOP's larger effort for what it is.

    Ironic, that the so-called 'party of limited government' and of 'fiscal responsibility' has been spending millions of the tax-payers' dollars in various states in order to limit access to the peoples' capacity to throw their asses out of office.

    Yes, it really is amazing; expected, but amazing in its blatancy nonetheless.

    Jay Bookman has summed it up nicely here

    Amen to that...

    Good news, Capstone. It shows that the right wing voter suppression is getting its ass kicked by the GOTV ground game. Fucking mittens thinks his Madison Avenue approach can win. What a moron.

    You won't give any links at all. Your mindless obscenities are just a smokescreen.
