2014 is an important election year. In Ohio, we will be electing a (we hope) new Governor and Lieutenant Governor, Secretary of State, State Auditor and Attorney General. In addition, Congressional Representatives are being elected and replacing Steve Stivers with Scott Wharton is a priority.  Finally, we have county offices like Franklin County Commissioner and Franklin County Auditor and local judgeships.

Why Vote Early?

1. It’s convenient!

2. What if your child gets sick on election day and you can't leave home?

3. What if Central Ohio is hit with torrential rain, an ice storm or freak snowstorm on Election Day?

4. You free up space in line for others to vote on Election Day.

5. Voting early removes you from calling lists.

Even the first lady has voted early and President Obama plans to vote early when he visits Chicago later this month!  Read about it here.

Team Obama: We're winning Ohio among early voters

The Obama campaign on Friday circulated a memo claiming to be well ahead of Mitt Romney among early voters in the critical battleground state of Ohio.

“Today we are ahead of where we were at this time against John McCain — and ahead of Mitt Romney,” national field director Jeremy Bird wrote. “Republicans are similarly talking up their ground game and early vote numbers, but their assertions rest on much shakier ground.”

No Republican presidential candidate has ever lost Ohio and gone on to win the election.

Republicans have touted their ground game in the crucial state, claiming they've closed the gap with Democrats.

President Obama has led in Ohio throughout this cycle, but polls have tightened in recent weeks. According to the Real Clear Politics average of polls, Obama leads Romney by 2.4 percentage points in the Buckeye State.
