OH Court Resolves Lingering Provisional Issues
The US District Court for the Southern District of Ohio has ordered that Ohio provisional ballots shall not be rejected merely because poll workers failed to execute their part of the accompanying paperwork properly. However, the order does not detail what to do if voters, due to poor instructions from poll workers or other reasons, themselves fail to execute their part of the paperwork properly. The order also states that addresses that do not correspond to any building shall be considered acceptable addresses for purposes of voting so long as the voter intends to return to that address.
