43 Forum: November Elections

(11/6/11) - My guest Jane Platten, Director of The Cuyahoga County Board of Elections, and I talked about the upcoming November 8th elections. 

We discussed that the driver this election is Issue 2, the effort to repeal Senate Bill 5. 

We talked about changes made is the voting process that may have been confusing given all the proposed changes from Columbus. 

One, is that this past Sunday October 30th, 2011 was the last Sunday one could go to the board of elections and vote. 

Usually, it is the Sunday before the election.  The number of days one has to vote before November 8th have been reduced down to 27. 

We discussed the fact that the board did not sent out absentee ballots to all registered voters as they've done in the past and that you had to request one if you wanted to vote absentee. 

Also that the 44 cents postage isn't enough.  It now costs 64-cents to return an absentee ballot by mail. 

We talked about the need to have Proper ID and how to vote if you have been foreclosed on, using your old address if you haven't found another permanent address yet. 

We also talked about efforts to make sure voter fraud is kept to a minimum. 

We discussed the provisional ballots and the importance understanding the process, what to do if you show up at the wrong polling place, if your name is not in the alphabetical book at the poll and you can observe the election process. 

Polls open at 6:30a.m. and close at 7:30p.m. on Tuesday November 8th, 2011.
