No apathy in voter signup

By Joe Wessels
The Cincinnati Enquirer

        Election workers around the Tristate are seeing more people lining up to register to vote.

        Voters have less than two weeks to register for the Nov. 7 election, though deadlines vary by state.

        If election officials' observations are correct, people interested in voting could be at record numbers.

        In Hamilton County, 10,229 new voters have registered since March's primary election, bringing the county's total registered voters to 560,959 as of Sept. 14.

        For most states, voter registration closes 30 days before the election — Oct. 7 this year. The deadline falls on a Saturday this year — an off day for most government offices. In Ohio, law dictates the day change to the following Monday, which is Columbus Day this year. So, the deadline moves again for Ohioans, to the following day, Tuesday, Oct. 10.

        The same holds true in Indiana.
