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.
