GOTV worked in Ohio

Mark Nyamik reports in the Cleveland Plain Dealer that get-out-the-vote efforts largely succeeded:

A new survey by the U.S. Census Bureau shows about 586,000 black Ohioans cast ballots in the Nov. 2 election - 67 percent of all black residents eligible to vote. That was up from 55 percent four years ago, when about 502,000 blacks voted. Nationwide, 60 percent of eligible black voters cast a ballot in 2004.
Another great tidbit of info:
Jason Mauk, a spokesman and strategist for the Ohio Republican Party, said the Democratic Party "out-registered" the Republicans by a 2-to-1 margin, "but clearly both parties worked hard."
