Conflicting reports in Ohio
Election Protection is reporting several problems in Cuyahoga County (Cleveland) and Franklin County (Columbus). After voting from same address for years, some voters have suddenly disappeared from the list at poll. Other voters received a voter registration card/notice of registration and precinct, as recently as this fall and yet are not on the poll registry. Voters have also reported that they are on the statewide database but not on the poll registry.
The Cleveland Plain Dealer quoted the director of Cuyahoga County board of elections as having "no major issues whatsoever." The Columbus Dispatch reports heavy turnout but 'brisk and orderly' voting.
