Episcopal cathedral hosts early voting action

Episcopal cathedral hosts early voting action

Trinity Episcopal Cathedral in downtown Cleveland, Ohio, was the starting point for an early voting election action yesterday afternoon. The county Board of Elections is less than half a mile from the cathedral, and it is also the only location in the county for in-person early voting. Yesterday was of the first of two Sunday openings for voting in this election cycle.

Cleveland.com reports,

Several hundred voters marched to the Cuyahoga County Board of Elections on Sunday to cast ballots and protest the limited number of in-house early voting locations in Ohio.

The marchers departed at 2:30 p.m. from the Trinity Episcopal Cathedral and traveled a half-mile to the Board of Elections headquarters on Euclid Avenue.

Greater Cleveland Congregations and the Amalgamated Transit Union organized the event to encourage Cuyahoga County residents to vote early before the general election on Nov. 8.

But the march also highlighted the fact that ballots cast in person before the election must be filled out at the Board of Elections. …

U.S. Rep. Marcia Fudge, a Democrat representing a Northeast Ohio district that includes Cleveland and Akron, attended the gathering at Trinity Episcopal Church that preceded the march.

Trinity, Cleveland does amazing things. They are a life blood and a heart beat of the community.

Bless them and bless Dean Tracy Lind.

The Episcopal Café seeks to be an independent voice, reporting and reflecting on the Episcopal Church and the Anglican tradition.  The Café is not a platform of advocacy, but it does aim to tell the story of the church from the perspective of Progressive Christianity.  Our collective sympathy, as the Café, lies with the project of widening the circle of inclusion within the church and empowering all the baptized for the role to which they have been called as followers of Christ.

The opinions expressed at the Café are those of individual contributors, and, unless otherwise noted, should not be interpreted as official statements of a parish, diocese or other organization. The art and articles that appear here remain the property of their creators.
