While big primary contests have yet to happen, early voting starts in Ohio tomorrow. Don’t wait until primary election day (March 17, by the way) to vote. Download and print this flyer from the Knox County Board of Elections that lists the times available for voting in person and information about absentee voting. Ask for a Democratic ballot and vote:
- Your choice of Democratic nominee for President
- Representative to Congress (7th District): Write-in Quentin Potter (you must fill in the oval and write in “Quentin Potter” — see illustration)
- Justice of the Supreme Court: John P. O’Donnell
- Justice of the Supreme Court: Jennifer Brunner
- Judge of the Court of Appeals (5th District): William B. Hoffman
- State Representative (68th District): Steven F. Mount
ALERT: PURGING OF VOTERS
Even though it is your right to decide when you want to vote, more than 1.7 million Ohio voters were removed from voter registration files by local county boards of elections because of inactivity. Ohio Secretary of State Jon Husted purged voters because they chose not to vote. Were you one of the 1.7 million purged?
If you arrive at your polling place and cannot be found in the poll book, thanks to an ACLU of Ohio court victory, you may cast a provisional ballot. Respectfully, but firmly, insist on your right to a provisional ballot. If any problems should arise, call Knox County BOE at 740-393-6716 immediately.
