Federal Judge Declined to Change Ohio’s Election Plan
Federal Judge Michael H. Watson declined to change the election plan Ohio lawmakers unanimously approved last month.
House Bill 197 requires the state’s primary election to be conducted mostly by mail.
Additionally, the bill extends absentee balloting until April 28 for the presidential and state primary elections.
In-person voting originally scheduled for March 17 was postponed by order of the state’s Health Department in response to COVID-19 concerns.
