OHIO TURNOUT UP IN RED COUNTIES, DOWN IN BLUE

November 6, 2012 11:50 pm  

(Breitbart) – On CNN, the correspondent with the Obama campaign reported that Team Obama is telling her that they see nothing in the Ohio turnout that looks any different from what they expected — in other words, the polls were correct.

Take that for what it’s worth.

Below is some information from a GOP source; actual data. It doesn’t tell us everything but it does tell us something.

I am watching the Twitternets where I follow even more left-wing media types than my fellow Righties. If there’s actual data showing Obama counties experience some kind of turnout surge, I haven’t seen it, but I will report it if I do.

Quick update – turnout is up in GOP Geauga County, Ohio where McCain won with 57% of the vote and down in Athens County, the home of Ohio University and where Obama won with 67% in 2008. Early vote in Geauga? 125% of 2008. Athens? Down 10% from 2008.

SHOT: GOP county turnout up

Plain Dealer: Geauga election chief predicts 80 percent voter turnout today
Geauga County early vote was 125% more than 2008 early vote
McCain won Geauga County with 57% and Bush got 60% in ‘04
CHASER: Dem county turnout down
WOUB: Athens County Election Officials: Morning Voter Turn Out Low
Athens County early vote was 10% less than 2008 early vote
Obama won Athens County with 67%

ADDED from a GOP source:

Butler County (outside Cincinnati) where McCain won with 61% and Bush with 66%. Early voting was also good for Romney at 121% of 2008.

· Early voting was 121% of 2008

· McCain got 61 percent, Bush 66%

That’s the data to wrap some context around this news report:

In Butler County, voters were out at polling spots before the doors opened, said Jocelyn Bucaro, deputy director of the Butler County Board of Elections.

Bucaro said there was a 30-minute line at the board of elections office, located at 1802 Princeton Road.

“We had lines at most polling locations at 6:30 a.m.,” she said. “Lines have quieted down and there’s a steady stream.”

Bucaro said she anticipates a total of 175,000 voters in Butler County casting a ballot this presidential election through absentee and in-person voting. She said a total of 46,387 absentee ballots have been cast in the county.
