Tomorrow, Tuesday September 25, is National Voter Registration Day
You have until October 9 to register in Ohio, but voter registration groups across the country are issuing a reminder tomorrow. Get your butt in gear and make sure you are on the rolls!
Or you can go down to your board of elections. If you go between October 2 and October 9, you can vote there at the same time. I'm not quite sure why the Republicans in Columbus didn't ban that so-called "Golden Period" because they sure did complain about it enough.
And if you think you're registered but have any reason at all to not be sure, double check with your board of elections.
Tomorrow outside the Cuyahoga County Board of Elections at East 30th and Euclid Avenue, 11th District Congresswoman Marcia Fudge will be hosting a voter protection event from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. with labor and civic leaders, elected officials and clergy.
