Its already happening. I live in Hamilton county Ohio (Cincinnati) and AM 1230 is already reporting people are being forced to take provisional ballots even though they are on the voter rolls. (Click the link and take a listen.)  I left work early to do what I could do. Ill be going to polling place after polling place today taking pictures and getting video of what the hell is going on down here. Cincinnati is the linchpin of this election. This is breaking my heart but not unexpected.  Please follow me at for breaking updates.  AND DO NOT FOR ANY REASON NO MATTER WHAT ANYONE SAYS TAKE A PROVISIONAL BALLOT IF YOUR NAME IS ON THE ROLL.

3:07 PM PT: UPDATE part 2

So I’m back home charging my phone and got information on three polling places in the Cincinnati area that there have been reports that’s Romney lawyers have been running over and intimidating poll workers and voters into casting a provisional ballot. 4761 Madison Road at the Madisonville Rec center,  The Winton Terrace community Hall at 4848 Winneste Ave and The Bond hill Rec center on 1501 Elizabeth place.  If you are anyone else have had trouble voting there are anywhere else in America please call 1-855-VOTE-199. If I get anything solid or comments from people on the ground you will be sure to hear about it.  GET IN LINE BEFORE 7:30 IN OHIO. DON’T LEAVE. IF YOU ARE ON THE ROLL DON’T ACCEPT A PROVISIONAL BALLOT

Update part 3

So I got a little more clarification on what is going on today. Some Ohio voters were sent absentee ballots by the state without ever requesting them.  The program director for AM 1230 Jeri Tolliver has said over the last couple of months that she was one of the recipients of an unsolicited absentee ballot. When you receive an absentee ballot your name goes on the roll as you already voted so your only recourse is to cast a provisional.  This is why early voting was so important. At this point with a little over two hours left until to polls close can someone tell me why I shouldn’t feel depressed and dejected? Seriously I need it.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
