Glitch delays delivery of Ohio voter records



Published: Wed, October 31, 2012 @ 10:33 a.m.

COLUMBUS (AP) — A glitch in the transfer of change-of-address records is being blamed for a small number of Ohio voters’ absentee ballot requests possibly being rejected by mistake.

The Plain Dealer of Cleveland reports that the problem can be traced to a delay transferring some updated address records from the state Bureau of Motor Vehicles to Secretary of State Jon Husted’s office.

Husted just this week sent about 33,000 updated registration records to local elections officials. Because of the delay, an unknown number of absentee ballot applications had been rejected because county elections officials didn’t have some voters’ current addresses.

Officials in Cuyahoga County — which includes Cleveland — said 71 such applications were rejected. Those voters will be sent new absentee ballots. Numbers weren’t available for other counties.

How much do you want to bet that a large majority of those rejections were from registered Democrats?
