OH-15: No change and no numbers on outstanding ballots in the district
As the processing of the remaining absentee ballots and all of the provisional ballots continues in the 15th district, there appears to be nothing to do but wait. Stivers still leads by only 393 votes. Franklin County has the most uncounted ballots of the three counties in the district with 27,306 provisional and 27,235 absentee outstanding according to a secretary of state report. It is not clear from any source, however, how many of these ballots are from the 15th district. Franklin County's website only reports on categories of ballots that have already been counted. Notably, the county reports 210 overvotes and 16,837 undervotes which may get a second look during a recount. Union County and Madison County are wholly within the 15th district. Madison has 674 provisional ballots and 240 absentee ballots outstanding. Union has 720 provisional ballots and 326 absentee ballots outstanding.
