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."
