10. In my county in Ohio
if you walk in to the BOE between now and election day you can vote early. The ballot is paper! That is where I will be headed. I think the reaction you received is truly weird. I imagine they were supposed to get you paper if you asked for it otherwise they would have told you that all voting was electronic. That sucks! Peace, Kim
