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.
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.
