Ohio 2008, Still Not Ready For An Election!

A February Check-Up of the Election Websites.

Absentee and Voter Registration Forms Have Problems.

Blackwell still the Secretary of State in One County…

And Only 23 Days Away From 2008 The Presidential Primary.

~

By Paddy Shaffer

Director, The Ohio Election Justice Campaign

February 10, 2008,

~

An initial report is just in from one of our new citizen election researchers, Jennifer Alexander. There are some troubling issues that need immediate attention for the Ohio Board of Election Websites. It is our hope that this article and research will be taken seriously by Ohio Secretary of State Jennifer Brunner and her staff, and that changes will happen immediately to remedy the noted problems. We also hope that the Liaisons entrusted to watch over the County Boards of Elections, will add checking the websites to their duties while doing routine oversight and maintenance for the Boards of Elections (BOE).

~

This is urgent, because it looks like some of these problems could easily take away the ability to vote for many people. Auglaize County doesn’t ask for the correct identification information, making it difficult to process the voter’s paperwork. The website does offer this helpful statement, “Voting is a privilege for citizens of the United States. Information that will be helpful to you about voting in the State of Ohio is listed below.” Then it says nothing. Perfect for our current situation, for some it looks like again this year, nothing is known that will help them to vote. It should be enough that we are citizens of this country, why does it have to be so hard?

~

Darke, Defiance, Hancock, and Shelby counties invite the voter to fax in the absentee ballot form. At the same time Warren and Montgomery Counties claim it is illegal to fax in such a form. So what will happen to those absentee ballots faxed in? It gets worse in Henry County… Which on their website the information reads, “Deadline for requesting absentee ballot is noon December 10, 2007” yet according to the Ohio Secretary of State, the deadline is “noon the Saturday before election”, which would be March 1, 2008. How can Henry County be off by months… for the absentee ballot? Who is watching over this state?

~

The Ohio Election Justice Campaign has been strongly beating the drums for election reform, and requesting that Secretary Brunner do something to assist in the investigation and prosecution of citizen documented election crimes for 2004 and subsequent elections, with the urgency turned up to high since August of 2007. We have repeatedly been told that there is no evidence, which is untrue; we even provided it to both the Secretary of State (SOS), and to the Attorney General (AG). Both the SOS and AG offices have repeatedly told us that they can’t do that investigation and prosecution, because they can only focus on getting ready for 2008 elections. How do they say they are ready? What the OEJC has found on some of the websites proves… THEY ARE NOT READY.

~

When looking at Lawrence County, under "numerical list of election forms" at the top it says KEN BLACKWELL and is dated 12/06. This refers to who the Secretary of State is. Does the Lawrence County BOE know that J. Kenneth Blackwell has not been the Secretary of State for the past 14 months?

~

At this time on behalf of the Ohio Election Justice Campaign, and the voters of Ohio, I hope the Secretary of State in Ohio, Jennifer Brunner (who will be receiving a copy of this) will personally make certain that no voter is adversely effected by the mismanagement of some of these Ohio websites. I would also like to note that there are some sites in very good shape. Thanks to those that have done their duty.

~

Please take a look at the below data, and a description from the researcher of what she found, and some of her thoughts. If you are in a different state, please do this health check-up on your election websites. They should all work, nation wide. And now the research, there are more fascinating details below that I have not touched on….

State of Ohio Board of Elections Comparison of County BOE Web Sites

Only a few areas of concern were addressed in this first comparison of the county sites:

1) instructions, forms, dates and rules listed pertaining to ABSENTEE VOTING

2) employee and board member listings, contact info and party ID

3) listing of board meetings

4) poll worker info

5) public records request policy

I looked over most info, even that which didn't pertain to the above items, yet not with the same precise attention. I "red flagged" anything that caught my attention or that I questioned. I "bold red flagged" items that need immediate attention. When I first started I had the intention to document and compare all info, and "rate" each county. My schedule has not allowed that, therefore you will see a few comments about rating. I gave a rating to a few counties that stood out either for the bad or good. These were based on nothing more than my opinion, the amount of information, and how user friendly the site was for me.

I claim no perfection in any way with the below comparison report, it is basically nothing more than my notes. Taken on what each BOE felt was important priority information to be listed or not listed on their county BOE site. I understand and respect the limitations some of these counties have with their budgets compared to other counties. Yet, what I don't understand or respect are counties that are publicly posting information that is simply wrong or outdated that can cause voters rights to be taken away from them.

The below notes were taken while studying the differences in the county BOE sites, after the documented problem in Montgomery County reported in the Dayton Daily News on 2/2/08.

http://www.daytondailynews.com/n/content/oh/story/news/local/2008/02/01/ddn020208elex.html

My notes are from 2/3/08-2/7/08

During this period of time, I saw several counties make changes with their web sites or make updates.

I question, if after the problem with Montgomery County, if the SOS office themselves, or each county didn't start to take a closer look at the info they posted. Trying to correct mistakes, possibly prior to the media taking a closer look or activist groups.

guide for paper ballots (first I've seen);good links; "job opportunities(first I've seen, and happy since it seems most do not properly publicly post these positions);

poll worker info and manual, shocked by the pay of $172.10 for poll worker and $200.00 for poll coordinator, not that I don't think they should get this amount, but I thought there was a cap on the amount to be paid in Ohio???

listing old rules for absentee voting, not the current laws of "NOT NO FAULT "absentee voting,

the site list all the requirements that need to be met to qualify for such(ex.out of state for election day); with poll worker info they also state you need not be affiliated with either political party to serve as either a dem or rep for election day???yet later it states just the opposite info about party

general email and email for director, deputy,and admin.assistant; board members listed as well without party ID or contact info;contracted web design to TGM Designs (in Troy);awesome election glossary(first I've seen);great election info for candidates;great links;

if mistakes were cleaned up this would be a top rated

county BOE site in my opinion.
