Foreclosure Adds Extra Hurdle For Voters In Ohio

CLEVELAND (AP) - Keeping their voter registrations up-to-date could mean an additional worry for the 85,000 Ohioans who lost their homes to foreclosure last year.

Voters in Ohio must report new addresses to their local board of education by next Monday to cast a ballot in the Nov. 4 presidential election.

Some foreclosed homeowners also could be uncertain where to vote. Ohio law gives leeway to voters whether to register using their temporary or long-term address.

People who register during a one-week period beginning Tuesday also can cast an immediate vote at election board offices. The same-day option is the subject of a court challenge.
