Absentee Ballots in Cuyahoga County (Ohio) have mistakes

    Review Finds Mistakes On 5,100 Absentee Ballots
    Board Of Elections To Send Reprinted Ballots To Voters

    CLEVELAND -- There are more troubles for the Cuyahoga County Board of Elections just one month before the state votes on a new governor.

    The troubles center around the absentee ballots sent out to voters. A weekend review revealed 5,100 ballots that have misprints of one form or another, NewsChannel5 reported.

    The review was prompted by last week's discovery that 1,500 ballots in Ohio's 7th House District race listed the wrong party affiliations for the candidates.

    Some mistakes discovered over the weekend include one candidate's name appearing smaller than his opponent's on the ballot because of its length.

    Other things include punctuation problems with a couple of local ballot questions. All the ballots in question are being reprinted and will be mailed out to the voters who will be contacted.

    "We will contact them personally to let them know. We will also contact them by the notification of the absentee ballots. We'll also let the candidates know, and if they would like the list of those registered voters who are impacted, they will have the opportunity to contact those individuals themselves," said board of election Director Michael Vu.

Michael Vu should have been fired for the last election fiasco in Cuyahoga County but the Board of Elections kept him on.

I don't know where this man came from, who he knows and why he is protected but HE NEEDS TO GO.

Vu was on the evening news looking and talking stupid. Why are we stuck with him?

I cannot even begin to believe that November's election won't have major problems.

1. Dems on the BOE demanded he resign
The GOP members overruled. Since the GOP has a majority in Columbus, they get more seats on county BOE's and therefore control the vote. Its a rank, stupid, corrupt system.

The GOP insistence on keeping Vu in spite of his "mistakes" is plenty suspcious.
