Detente, at last, at Summit Board of Elections

The most  profound item on the Summit County Board of Elections agenda Wednesday was

                    #3) "approval to hold general election , November 6, 2012"

 Even with board member  Alex Arshinkoff back, the item was approved without debate.  See:  this board can agree on some things without 2-2 deadlocks.  Otherwise, Secretary of State Jon Husted had eliminated further tension by declaring that it was OK for voters to cast their ballots in the 3 days leading to the Nov. 6 election that the board approved in its brief meeting.

If you are an 11th hour voter, the elections board will offer you these early voting hours:

Saturday, Nov. 3,  8 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Sunday , Nov. 4, 1  - 5 p.m.
Monday, Nov. 5, 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. 

Whew!  Why was  that so hard for Husted to finally accept?
