  •  No Republican Campaign Signage Has Been Visible (3+ / 0-)

    in our region of NE Ohio. As I commented elsewhere, we voted this morning, I'd judge turnout as light but it's still early and cold. Should be 50 today which will allow right-leaning seniors easy access.

    Turnout in our precinct was 50-50 based on my party voter count vs the total ballot count.

    Photo ID required.

    •  If they demanded photo ID (4+ / 0-)

      you need to call your board of elections, and sic them on the pollworkers immediately. Photo ID is NOT a legal requirement in Ohio, and they are breaking the law.

        but do you have to present another document to verify that the address you are registered at is where you currently live.  A bank statement, utility bill, paycheck or government document is sufficient.  If you can't come up with any of these you can still cast a provisional ballot, but sometimes as we know provisional ballots don't get counted if the contest is not "close".

    •  Same in my part of Central OH (0+ / 0-)

      I voted at 07:45 and the place was a ghost town.  We have about 4 precincts voting in one building.  No GOP signage at all.  I only went to keep my 100% voting attendance record intact and vote YES for a local school tax referendum.

      In 2010, I paid more taxes than General Electric.
