And I agree! If there is rioting in Cincinnati from an Obama loss I am thinking Milton's may be the flash point...lol

The Clermont County Board of Elections is always a swingin' place to be on election night.

I don't associate Clermont County and swingin' ... at least not in the way you're suggesting.

IF its close, we won't know for several days because they have to count the absentees and military votes,I heard on the news today it could be 10 days before everything is counted in Ohio. But I don't believe Ohio will "decide" this race.

Personally I don't plan on being out at all. If Romney wins, after the media hype that Obama would win, I pretty much expect there to be some backlash/rioting, especially if it isn't close and not just Cincinnati, but several heavily "welfare/entitled" areas in the US.

I would be more interested in seeing what happens in Pennsylvania because if Romney were to win that, its probably over.

Personally just glad we only have Presidential elections every four years...though the campaigning now never ends. Would love to own an advertizing agency, those people made a killing this year!

The absentees and military should not be a problem. What is a problem are the provisional ballots. These are when someone shows up at the polls but are not validated to be a voter. They may have gone to the wrong polling place because they moved and don't know where the valid one is. Also, absentee ballots come into play here. I got a notice this year saying I could apply for an absentee ballot. I just ignored it. Now I understand I may have to vote a provisional ballot next week because I did not respond. These are the ones which take up to 10 days to validate. What bothers me is the large percentage which are denied.

My family have already voted, 1 absentee by mail and 3 early voting. I should get off my butt Monday and go vote at the county board of elections, then I will find out quickly whether they accept my vote status or not.

I wonder why. An absentee ballot is an option; if you're eligible, you don't have to use it or even apply for one if you'd rather go to the polls. At least that's how I understand it.

That's how I understood it also. So if they give me some hassle I will try and hassle they back the best I can.

Good luck with voting everyone. Will be watching the returns (at home, no parties in my neck of the woods I'd be interested in attending) and hoping its all over by Wednesday morning.
