Last Day for One-Stop Early Voting in Ohio

Ohio residents were treated to a free Bruce Springsteen concert at the Ohio State University yesterday afternoon. Over 10,000 people attended the concert as Bruce urged the crowd to register to vote before today's deadline. Bruce has been visiting cities to hold Vote for Change rallies and encourage supporters to get involved and take action this November.

Along with using his time to make sure everyone was registered, he reminded everyone that early voting started last week and today is the last day to One-Stop Early Vote.

Ohio is a crucial state and the campaign has been working hard all week to make sure that people are registered before the deadline.

According to the Franklin County Board of Elections over 6,800 people voted during the first six days of early voting. Early voting continues in Ohio until November 3.

The Columbus Dispatch interviewed two voters at the rally who had already taken part in the new early voting opportunity.
It took Nathan Laney, 19, of the East Side, 90 minutes to register and vote at Veterans Memorial today. "I like the convenience of it - to do both at the same time," Laney said.

Margie Davis voted early today because she'll be working the polls on Election Day. It took her 90 minutes to vote, which was a refreshing change from 2004 when long lines forced her to take the day off work.
Here are some pictures from yesterday's event...
Even though voting early in Ohio continues from now until Election day, today is the last possible day to register. Those who register today will have the opportunity to vote today, tomorrow, or any day of their choice.
