Democrat leaders fight to keep early voting downtown
CINCINNATI (WKRC) --A group of local Democratic leaders walked and rode buses from Walnut Hills to Mt. Airy Friday to fight to keep early voting downtown.
The group wanted to show how difficult it would be for voters without a car to get to a proposed new Board of Elections in Mt. Airy to vote.
It took the group an hour and a half, a bus transfer, $2.25 and a half of a mile walk from the closest bus stop to the proposed site.
"We had a vote on Wednesday, nobody knew about it. We're going to create opportunities for this issue to come in front of us," says Hamilton County commissioner, Todd Portune.
Republicans who want to move the voting location say improved transportation is a possibility, and all voters have the option of voting early by mail.
