To determine where to vote in Montgomery county- use their “Finder” http://www.mcohio.org/boe/voter_information/polling_location_finder.cfm
Polls will be open from 6:30 a.m. to 7:30 p.m., please bring valid ID. You can vote early today at the Montgomery County BOE in the basement of the Montgomery County Building: 451, W. Third Street, Dayton OH 45481 until 4 p.m.
This is to elect a Democrat to the November ballot to face Republican incumbent Mike R. Turner in OH-3 for Congress.
If you want to vote absentee (it’s too late to request absentee)- they will have a request for the form online at: http://www.mcohio.org/boe/voter_information/absentee_voting/absenteeform.cfm
Note THIS SITE IS NOT SECURE- therefore, I recommend only enter your birthday or any other non-secure info (leave out your driver’s license and last 4) then print it out- and fill those in by hand. Believe it or not- to receive a ballot- they insist on a original signature. Then make sure you mail it to the correct board of elections (the form will work in Warren, Highland or Clinton County).
If you don’t have the money for a stamp, you can call 937-228-4433 and I’ll be out to pick it up and hand deliver to the BOE. I’m now told only immediate family may deliver ballots or requests. I’ll supply postage if need be. Same goes for your ballots. This process is a way to disenfranchise poor voters who can’t find transportation to the polls or afford postage.
I will offer to drive people to polls- call 228-4433 to schedule.
We are still waiting for the Montgomery County Board of Elections to certify the names to go on the ballot- at their meeting tomorrow, Friday, 11 June, 2010, at their 1 p.m. board meeting.
The Montgomery County BOE has to invest in new electronic poll books, and ballot on demand printers to pull this off. This process has never been done before. How well the results will stand up to legal scrutiny after the fact will be interesting.
