OH-01 Update: 12:57PM

Update from the Cincinnati Enquirer from earlier today:

Steve Chabot forgets how to vote, must leave polling location, drive his piece of crap Buick home, and get a utility bill, wait back in line, and then finally vote... How can we listen to someone that doesn't even know how to vote?! The ironic thing is that he didn't even realize the polling location worker was wrong! If you have a valid (not expired) Drivers license, YOU CAN VOTE, regardless of the address printed on it.

I have heard poll workers making this mistake numerous times today. So remember, if you bring your drivers license and they reject it because your old address is printed on it, ask to speak to their supervisor. If they still give you trouble, call 1888DemVote and, if possible, show them ORC Section 3505.18(A).

No ID, no vote
Chabot turned away at polls

WESTWOOD - Congressman Steve Chabot found out just how serious elections officials are about the new voter ID law when he showed up to vote at his polling place in Westwood.

Chabot went into the polling place at Westwood First Presbyterian Church about 9:30 a.m. and pulled out his Ohio driver’s license to show the poll workers. They looked at his license, and told the congressman that, even though they know perfectly well who he is, his driver’s license was issued to his business office, not his home, which is his voting address.

Somewhat sheepishly, Chabot went back out into the parking lot, jumped in his 1993 Buick - the one he talked about on his campaign commercials - and started heading back to his home a few blocks away to find a proper ID.

“I guess I’ll see if I can find a utility bill,” Chabot said. “That’s the law. You have to have proper ID.”

Chabot returned about 10 minutes later with a bank statement and a Social Security Administration statement in hand.

He went inside and voted quickly.

"My wife told me to bring two documents just to be sure," Chabot said. "I guess this just shows the poll workers are really doing their job."

§ 3505.18. Voting procedure.

(A) (1) When an elector appears in a polling place to vote, the elector shall announce to the precinct election officials the elector's full name and current address and provide proof of the elector's identity in the form of a current and valid photo identification, a military identification that shows the voter's name and current address, or a copy of a current utility bill, bank statement, government check, paycheck, or other government document, other than a notice of an election mailed by a board of elections under section 3501.19 of the Revised Code or a notice of voter registration mailed by a board of elections under section 3503.19 of the Revised Code, that shows the name and current address of the elector. If the elector provides either a driver's license or a state identification card issued under section 4507.50 of the Revised Code that does not contain the elector's current residence address, the elector shall provide the last four digits of the elector's driver's license number or state identification card number, and the precinct election official shall mark the poll list or signature pollbook to indicate that the elector has provided a driver's license or state identification card number with a former address and record the last four digits of the elector's driver's license number or state identification card number.

Looks like the Chabot's campaign rule that no one affiliated with the campaign is allowed to post on blogs no longer is effect since they realize that he is getting LESS than expected votes.

Cranley is going to win. He is already winning. Expect crazy campaign tactics from the Chabot camp.

Cranley is the next Congressman for Ohio's First, and Best, Congressional District.

Go Cranley!

I posted the Go Chabot, I don't work for the Chabot Campaign- I just don't like Cranley and what he's done with the city. Anyways, even if I were a Chabot employee, how would my "Go Chabot" comment encourage other votes to vote Chabot? I was just trying to wind up some liberals - and apparently I was successful!! Have a great evening!!

Who was it I heard on the radio that said "if he cant beat Chabot now, he never will".

I can't recall who said it but it was said by a major player in the DNC.
