Election 08 Continues in Ohio Supreme Court

Listen to the Story

Election 08 continues in the Ohio Supreme Court where the campaign of 15th congressional district hopeful Steve Stivers filed a lawsuit against the Secretary of State over how provisional ballots are counted.

A few dozen votes separate Stivers and Democratic hopeful Mary Jo Kilroy. Elections law expert Dan Tokaji says an earlier decision by Supreme Court justices likely indicates Jennifer Brunner will be successful in defending her decision to accept provisional ballots in envelopes without both a printed version of the voter’s name and a signature.

Dan Tokaji is an associate professor of law at the Moritz College of Law at Ohio State. Results of the 15th congressional district race might not be known until the end of the month.
