Skip to comments.Ohio State email can serve as election identification for students (vote stealing alert)

Ohio State students will be able to use a printed copy of an email from the Office of the University Registrar as a form of identification on Election Day.
During the week of Oct. 15, students will receive an email with their current address as listed in their student center on the Buckeyelink website, according to a Tuesday morning email to students from Enrollment Services.
This has actually been done for the past few elections, said Jack Miner, OSU senior associate registrar.
The email notification came on Tuesday, the first day of early voting and one day prior to the first presidential debate Wednesday.
Oct. 9 is the last day for voter registration in Ohio.
If a student is registered to vote in Columbus but is from another city or state, the address that appears on their drivers license or other forms of identification might not match the students voter registration address, which could create complications with identification on election day.
Miner said he hopes the email will encourage more students to vote while theyre away at college.
The email came as a relief to some students.
It was reassuring to know that I will actually be able to vote, said Sam Donnellon, a first-year in engineering.
Donnellon is from South Carolina but is registered to vote in Franklin County, having registered with his address at Bradley Hall.
I really didnt know how it worked, I just registered, Donnellon said, because he wanted to make sure he could vote while at OSU.
Vanavia Weatherly, a third-year in strategic communication and English, is from Canton but is registered to vote in Franklin County.
When I registered they told me I would get something in the mail but I never got anything, Weatherly said.

Anyone can fake an email.
Oh, wonderful...I could vote at least 3 times...I have at least 3 emails....sheesh.
The Marxists will use every sleazy trick in the book and not in the book to insure their continuing control of the government. Bet on it. AND even if/when they lose they will continue their efforts to turn the USA into a Socialist nightmare. This is a never ending fight.
just alter the txt file and presto you now have 20-50-1000 or even 10000 votes.
Republican poll watchers should take down the names of these students and follow up with voting records in their home states. If they are found to have returned an absentee ballot or have “showed up” at the polling place, they should be charged in each state with fraudulent voting.
faxed from a Kinko’s in Texas maybe?
Hey, if it’s good enough for the Pres__ent’s birth certificate...
actually I think the university personel should be criminally liable for doing this.
When I lived in Boston, the local Democrat machine DIDN'T want students voting in the elections (for city council, etc) because they didn't pay property tax and only went to school there for a portion of the year (did not typically meet in-state residency requirements for tuition). How many of these Ohio Democrats will be voting in their home states/districts as well as Ohio?
