Democratic voters turned away?

We're getting reports from several Clermont County precincts that Democratic voters are being turned away because polling places are out of Democratic ballots.

The Board of Elections there says that shouldn't be happening, and more ballots are on the way.

If you experience anything similar, post a comment here or e-mail jlbrown@enquirer.com

Doesn't matter as a republican I will vote for anyone over John McCain. Give me another Democratic ballot in November.

Guess what when the Republicans picked McCain everyone in Ohio decided they would rather be a Democrat.

If you think Clermont County is voting Democratic now wait and see the Republicans lose in Nov. I know I am a Republican and will vote Democrat regardless of who wins the primary.

I voted for Hillary.As a Republican it was surreal.I switched sides for this day only.I,in no way,support the DEM platform,but wanted to do my part to keep the DEM party split in half for as long as possible and to watch more MILLIONS get spent from both candidates to fight it out with each other.
I enjoyed the process this morning but needed a shot of Makers Mark and a long hot shower afterward.Next primary,I'm back as a REP.Meantime,I'll vote for McCain in the general election.

7:33- Ohio's general election allows any voter to vote for any candidate on the ballot- what the hell are you talking about?

Extra ballots showed up while I was voting at 7:15 this morning.

It is incredible running out of ballots at 2:00 in the afternoon and still not have any in at 5:00, at 7:10Milford received 20 ballots. My husband and I had the option of going to Batavia to vote - we did, and then found out it is a provisional ballot...does it even count? I do not want to vote electronically due to the fraud of the presidential election in 2000 & 2004 - is this just another way to control how people vote. We have lost so many rights with this current administration, I would not be surprised if is wasn't planned this way from the top down.

7:33...I'll ask Hillary if she rejects my vote for her today and wants me arrested for it.
DEMS jumped ship in droves and voted McCain in the 2000 primary.Funny...I don't recall The Enquirer printing a front page piece warning them not to as they did a few days ago to "warn republicans" about voting for Hillary...or was that The Enquirer wanting to suppress the vote for her and have their endorsed candidate Barackstar annointed...?
Politics...a full contact sport.

Why am I not surprised that south western Ohio would be so caught off guard by how many people wanted to switch sides and vote on the Dem side? Once again, Ohio proves itself to be so incredibly ignorant, slow, and completely behind the times. This has been happen ALL ACROSS THE COUNTRY!!! The numbers voting on the Dem side have been ten times what has shown up on the Rep', yet Ohio is caught with there pants down. "Gee, I didn't see that coming?"

WTF, do the people running the elections here live in a cave or what?
