To be delivered to: Jon Husted, Secretary of State and Governor John Kasich
In a last-minute directive issued Friday night that could disenfranchise thousands of Ohioans and tip the outcome of the election, Republican Secretary of State Jon Husted changed requirements for submitting provisional ballots on Election Day.
The directive requires voters, not election officials, to fill out a confusing form listing the type of ID they provided to vote. This new directive is a clear violation of Ohio law and puts even more votes at risk of not being counted.
Secretary Husted has also instructed election officials to not count ballots where that part of the form has not been correctly filled out by the voter.
