Ohio’s primary election was postponed. Now what?

March 23, 2020 | Media News

Professor Ned Foley, an expert on election law, was featured on Ohio State Insights on March 23 to discuss how postponing the primary elections in Ohio due to COVID-19 will impact voters and the election as a whole.

“In 1918, when the world was grappling with the Spanish Flu, they went forward with the general election because you must elect a new Congress every two years,” Foley said. “The challenge for the current Congress will be how to conduct this year’s election — and we may have to depend on absentee ballots more this year.”
