Response to Splinter Cell (Original post)

66. This is a new (relatively) directive from Husted

issued 10/3.

If there is an error on the voter identification ballot, it will not be counted not even provisionally unless the voter comes in, in person, to correct the error (or falls into the exception below). There are two different numbers on your drivers license - it is extremely easy to get one wrong.

If you are voting absentee by paper ballot, be absolutely certain that you have everything correct on your ballot

The exceptions are military currently overseas, or individuals are disabled. First - if he can get to the board of elections ahead of the election, have him go there to correct it. If he does that before the election, his ballot will be counted as a regular absentee ballot. (if you do that and it they tell you it will still only be counted provisionally, please PM me and I will use my observer connections to make a report - also if they have opened the ID envelope please PM me so I can make a report). If your father qualifies as disabled, the county must send someone to him to correct it.

Voters with Disabilities – Regardless of whether the voter requested assistance in casting the absentee ballot, if a voter requests assistance to supplement the voter’s identification envelope, the board of elections must send board employees, not of the same political party, to the voter to provide assistance.


Organizing for America is tracking "error" rates on ballots returned, and will be investigating places with higher than average (and perhaps higher than last year - I don't know how much information they have about last year, when corrections were permitted by paper - but they are aware of this new problem in Ohio)

As long as I'm on a roll - please make sure that if you are in Ohio and returned the form that Husted sent you that you vote using the ballot you will receive. Any other vote will be provisional. Many people did not realize the form was for an absentee ballot, and sent it in because they thought it was a form of caging. Once you request an absentee ballot (accidental or not), that is the ONLY non-provisional way to vote.
