The Franklin County Board of Elections decided Wednesday not to mail absentee ballot applications to all active voters prior to the August 4th special election. The board had been deadlocked on the issue since May.
The Franklin County Board of Elections could again discuss whether to mail absentee ballot applications for the August 4th special election. Columbus voters will decide next month whether to raise the city’s income tax, and early balloting is underway. But voters are not automatically receiving absentee ballot applications in the mail. That’s because of a vote along partly lines that deadlocked the Franklin County Board of Elections.

Just like it was two years ago the results of the race in the 15th Congressional District are extremely close.
