Ohio GOP Leaders Withdraw Provisional Ballot Claim
Republican lawmakers have dropped their lawsuit against Ohio’s elections chief over the handling of provisional ballots after a federal judge threatened them with contempt of court.
Secretary of State Jon Husted had defended his decision to require county election boards to follow U.S. District Court Judge Algenon Marbley’s decree instead of state law when counting the ballots.
At issue were requirements for providing identification when a voter has to cast a provisional ballot, typically a ballot cast in the wrong precinct.
Senate President Tom Niehaus and House Majority Leader Lou Blessing dropped the lawsuit Friday after Marbley ordered them to follow his ruling.
The GOP leaders had sued Husted, a fellow Republican, saying his action is unconstitutional because the elections board requirement violates the separation of powers doctrine.
