After months of nonstop campaigning and TV commercials, the election of 2012 begins to count at the ballot box today.
Early in-person voting begins in each of Ohio’s 88 counties at 8 a.m. while the first of more than 922,000 absentee ballots will begin to be mailed today by county boards of elections.
Democrats marked early voting with a “Sleep Out the Vote” event at which people were urged to camp out overnight ahead of today’s opening of the Franklin County voting site at the former Kohl’s store at 1700 Morse Rd. on the North Side.
Republicans planned a 7:30 a.m. early-voting rally at the Romney office at 1135 Dublin Rd. in Grandview Heights.
The campaign also is launching a “Commit to Mitt Early Vote Express” statewide bus tour.And a 30-city tour by Voters First Ohio — seeking to revamp the way Ohio draws congressional- and legislative-district boundaries — starts at the old Kohl’s at 9 this morning.
