Cuyahoga County’s Department of Public Works is seeking bids for help with the project approved by Cuyahoga County Council Monday evening to send a vote-by-mail application to all active Cuyahoga County voters.
The request for bids was approved Monday morning by Cuyahoga County’s Executive Board of Control in advance of the County Council’s Monday evening vote. Specifically, county government seeks help with manufacturing envelopes to be used in the mailing and mailhouse data processing.
Bids are due by 4 p.m. on Sept. 13, 2011. Prospective bidders are also required to attend mandatory pre-bid meeting on Sept. 6.
Meantime County Executive Ed FitzGerald praised the Cuyahoga County Council for voting Monday night in support of a plan to send applications to vote by mail to all active voters in Cuyahoga County.
“Tonight, Cuyahoga County took a stand in favor of making it easier to vote. We understand that it is important for us to do what we can to make voting easier, not harder,” FitzGerald said. “It’s a shame not everyone down in Columbus sees it that way. It’s unfortunate that it had to come to this.”
