Several requirements must be met before a proposed statewide issue can be placed on the ballot. Links explaining those procedures can be found here. The Ohio Ballot Board’s role in the process is first to determine whether the petition language contains a single issue and secondly, to prescribe the official ballot language and any missing arguments for each statewide issue.
As details of events become available, information will be posted.
Stay Home! Still Vote! Ohioans who have already cast primary ballots based on the March 17th original Primary Election date will have their ballots counted for the EXTENDED Primary Election date of Tuesday, April 28, 2020. Those registered voters who have not voted yet will now have most of the month of April to cast absentee ballots by mail. To vote in the Primary Election, voters MUST submit an Absentee Ballot Application to vote by mail. If you would like to participate in the Primary Election, you MUST vote by mail.
Why and How did Ohio’s March 17, 2020 Primary Election get so confusing and frustrating? Not only for the election officials scheduled to work the polls on Tuesday, but also for all of Ohio’s voters. One elected official and one candidate started the ball rolling Monday afternoon with everything snowballing from there. Check out the history of Ohio’s 2020 Primary.
