Still having problems with this?

One question - when you installed that Actual Access driver, are you  
just using the trial?  That only returns the first 3 records in any  
MDB, and those 3 might not be on your map region.

try this:

ogrinfo -al Pgeo:thecounty votes

That should list the attributes and coordinates data for those first  
three features. Or the whole file if you bought the driver.
