Isn't that supposed to become a state-wide thing?

In Cuyahoga county the board of elections is very accessible. However, you
are right, if using paratransit the waiting time can be boring.
I am very happy to be able to vote privately too and do not ever want this
option to go away. You will be able to register on line in Franklin county
very soon, hooray!
