Ohio voter challenged at polls for multiple reasons
A Columbus, Ohio voter showed up to vote and was told his registration had been challenged. He was given three possible reasons for the challenge: 1) that a mailing sent to him was returned as undeliverable, 2) that he signed the registration form outside the box on the form or 3) that his address on his Ohio driver's license didn't match the address on his registration form. Ohio's voter ID law does not require that an Ohio driver's license contain the voter's current address. The vote was able to cast a regular ballot, but only after going home to retrieve a form of identification with his current address.
