  •  Ought to be a Super PAC that can raise the funds (6+ / 0-)

    to specifically target Ohio voters county by county on how when and where to vote and to get those voters to the polls as early as possible or by absentee ( does Ohio require specific reason for absentee? In NM all you have to is ask for it).

      In fact, I'm pretty sure that this year, every voter is supposed to receive an absentee ballot automatically. It was part of Husted's rationale for not having longer early voting hours.

      Election protection: there's an app for that!

      Already in major overdrive. Anyone can vote absentee mail-in, and last year, our county executive Ed FitzGerald forced Husted's hand on mailing out applications (which Husted wanted to ban) by promising not to do it last year if every vote got an application this year. (Clearly Husted thought that preventing the mailings last year would help prevent the repeal of union-busting SB 5 but it was sort of a bad thought — the unions paid for mailings to friendly voters whereas if the BoE did it every registered vote would have gotten one).

      It's very possible that our 2014 gubernatorial race will be FitzGerald against Husted. I can hardly wait. Hey Ed, don't get to let me know the DAY you open your campaign headquarters. I'll be down!

      Take the "Can't(or)" out of Congress. Support E. Wayne Powell in Va-07.
