Hill headline is — not for the first time — confusing. Sandusky voters will not be going to the polls in mid-October, but the city is changing one of its paid-leave holidays from the second Monday of October to the first Tuesday in November. Far from a perfect solution (for one thing, I’m sure people will complain about non-volunteer poll workers getting overtime comp), but it’s a start.
