Ohioans: Vote This Weekend!
I'm heading to bed shortly because — and here's the reason I have not been able to maintain the type of posting I was hoping to do leading into this election — I am working in the early voting room at the Cuyahoga County Board of Elections. And we are open for business tomorrow at 8 a.m.
Thanks to a couple of federal appeals court decisions and the U.S. Supreme Court's refusal to re-hear them, Ohio once again has in-person early voting the three days prior to the election. Although some people have griped about the hours, they're actually fairly generous.
And they are uniform throughout the state.
Each county's early voting location will be open tomorrow — Saturday — from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m., again on Sunday from 1-5 p.m., and on Monday from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. If you are in line to vote by closing time, you can vote, no matter how long the line is. Tonight polls closed at 6 p.m., and we still had a long line. People were finishing up voting shortly before 7 p.m.
