COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — President Barack Obama is urging college students in Ohio to vote early, noting that the state's registration deadline is just hours away.
Obama is telling young voters at a large rally at Ohio State University not to wait or delay their vote, directing them to buses that are waiting to give them rides to early voting locations in one of the nation's top battleground states.
The president says, quote, "everything we fought for in 2008 is on the line in 2012."
Tuesday is the state's deadline to register to vote. Obama was campaigning in Ohio as a new poll showed his edge in the state narrowing against Republican Mitt Romney. A new CNN poll shows Obama leading Romney 51 percent to 47 percent among likely Ohio voters.
