The Biological Sciences Greenhouse at OSU has been fortunate to have multiple bloomings of the Titan Arum, aka, the corpse flower. They have its smaller but also smelly cousin, the Voodoo Lily. From its bruise-colored bloom that resembles a corpse, to its stench of rotting flesh, this tropical flower masks its beauty to attract its pollinators.
Poll Confusion Leaves Many Ballots Uncast
Elections officials say some voters in Franklin county left polling places this morning without casting ballots because poll workers were confused about ballots.
Board of elections spokesman Ben Piscitelli says the confusion came in 110 polling places where multiple precincts vote. When multiple precincts have identical candidates and issues, voting machines only require a single ballot.
But Piscitelli says poll workers were looking for a unique ballot for each precinct.
Piscitelli says many voters were confused and frustrated and left without voting. The county is urging voters to return before polls close this evening at 7 p.m.
