2,200 voters in Democrat-leaning Ohio county given wrong date for presidential election
COLUMBUS, Ohio — About 2,200 voters in northwest Ohio were mailed official postcards listing the presidential election date as Nov. 8 when Election Day is Nov. 6.
The Ottawa County Board of Elections was working Monday to remedy the error.
Deputy Director Carol Ann Hill said the cards were sent to three precincts, affecting about 7 percent of the county's 30,000 registered voters.
She said the small percentage "doesn't make it any better" and new cards with accurate information will go out as soon as possible. The bad cards also listed a wrong polling place.
Ohio Democrats criticized the mistake. Ottawa County, east of Toledo along Lake Erie, went 52 percent for Democrat Barack Obama in the last election.
Obama beat Republican John McCain there by 1,440 votes in 2008.
Ok this type of thing is disgusting, but if people can't check for themselves then they're probably too indifferent and stupid anyway.

Nobody should have to check...there was a time when voters knew that election day is always the first Tuesday in November.
That's an old one they've used in the past.
So what you're saying R5 is that now that they don't, they also shouldn't have to check?
No, R7. If they're too stupid to know when election day is, perhaps they're also too stupid to be allowed to vote.
Why aren't heads rolling & people held accountable? What a joke our elections are, bosses threatening workers on who they vote for, relatives of incumbents owning voting machines & all this manipulation goes unpunished. Just sickening.
Demand a re-vote if Obama doesn't win it.
Those wonderful Christian Republicans and their criminal behavior.
If they (really do) believe in God - aren't they worried about their day of reckoning? They know they can't cheat their way into heaven, right?
Morally bankrupt. The lot of them.
