Obama volunteers register voters downtown

CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - A group of President Obama supporters hit the streets of downtown today to register voters. The volunteers also asked voters to update their personal information if the information on file was inaccurate. Voters were also able to sign up for early and absentee voting.

Volunteers also worked to clear up misconceptions about who can and cannot cast a ballot, for example, felons are able to cast a vote as soon as they are out of jail. They also explained that if a voter has an old address on their ID they can still vote, as long as they bring their utility bill.
