Ohio voter fraud billboard upsets locals

From the Columbus Dispatch, leaders in a predominantly African American Cleveland neighborhood are not thrilled about a billboard advertising that "voter fraud is a felony." 

Leaders in the community where the billboard is placed — it's located on E. 35th Street and Community College Blvd — say the billboard is a blatant attempt at voter intimidation. 

The billboard was paid for by a "private family foundation." Voter fraud is a controversial issue in this election. While fraud cases are extremely rare, fear of fraud has led to more stringent voter ID laws across the country, which Democrats say will make it harder for minorities, poor and elderly voters to cast their ballots. 

Ohio's non-photo voter ID law has not changed, but there have been legal battles over early voting and provisional ballots.
