Voters express election concerns at public hearing

The presidential election may have been settled in Ohio nearly 3 weeks ago, but many people are still upset about their experience at the polls. Over the weekend dozens of people attended a public hearing where they voiced their concerns.

The pews were full Saturday at the New Faith Baptist Church on Oak Street, full of people concerned about what happened on election day. There were poll workers, voters, and election advocates.

In all, 200 people filed their complaints either in writing or in public testimony. A court reporter took notes and everyone who testified signed an affidavit. Most of the complaints were about long lines. Some people also talked about problems with disability access and poll workers checking identification when it was not required.

Another hearing is scheduled for Monday night at 6:00 at the Franklin County Courthouse on High Street in Columbus.
