Secretary of State needs to fix postmark issue so that voters ballots are counted
January 20, 2016
During the Ohio Association of Elections Officials Winter Conference in Columbus held the week of January 11th, the issue of ballots not being counted due to the U.S. Post Office not properly postmarking the ballot envelope was discussed. Due to no fault of over 1,500+ Ohio voters, their ballot was not counted for the November 2015 General Election. State Representative Kathleen Clyde (D-Kent) has asked Ohio’s Secretary of State to issue a directive to fix this matter before the presidential primary in March 2016.
