Six months before a presidential election that will put the Ohio vote in the spotlight, Ohio Secretary of State Jon Husted said Monday he’s trying to set up the best electoral process possible, and “eliminate excuses in advance.”
....Husted said one of his main goals is to recruit the best poll workers that the state can get, and plenty of them. Ohio needs about 40,000 people to staff 9,500 precincts on Nov. 6. Husted’s office has set up a website — PEOinOhio.com — where people can sign up to be precinct elections officials. Volunteers will be reviewed and selected by county boards of election....
...Mark Owens, chairman of the Montgomery County Democratic Party, said Democrats have already raised concerns about early-voting procedures and handling of provisional ballots, but said Husted’s office ruled against them....
With Republicans in control, we've got to get more Democrats out to work at the polls. We don't want a repeat of the 2004 elections. Sign up, get your friends, relatives, and neighbors involved. You also will be paid for the day. Don't delay.
Hmmmm. Why isn't there any mention of the need for poll workers in the Columbus Dispatch?
