More than 73,000 Ohioans have voted early so far in the state’s primary election next month.

Secretary of State Jon Husted said 73,207 residents already have cast absentee ballots, while 155,093 ballots have been requested since the early voting period began for most on April 1. Absentee voting for military and overseas voters started March 22.

The election includes same-party candidate contests, a statewide ballot issue and about 600 local issues.

The deadline to request an early ballot is noon on May 3. Ohioans can vote absentee without giving any reason.

Voted ballots that are mailed must be postmarked by May 5 and received by May 16. Election boards also will accept them until polls close May 6. They cannot be returned at polling places.

There were fewer than ten (10) verified cases of voter fraud in Ohio during the 2012 election, in a state with 10 million residents. Some of the 10 cases of fraud, of course, were Republicans. Gotta watch those silly conservatives, pretending that voter fraud is a real problem...

4,000 Republicans became Democrats in the 2008 primary in Sandusky County to vote for Hillary.

You were saying about Republicans?

BTW... where is your precinct?

Area Boards of Elections are not receiving requests for ballots that have been mailed - even when voters have receipt for mailing.

Guess which political party this woman belongs to:

"She was convicted of voting twice in the 2012 election and voting three times — in 2008, 2011 and 2012 — for her sister, Montez Richardson, who has been in a coma since 2003."
