Coronavirus: Ohio Election Unclear Despite Judge’s Ruling

Governor says that voting is still postponed

After issuing a release that appears to defy a judge’s ruling that Tuesday’s primary must go forward, a source in the governor’s office says that’s not the case. Less than nine hours before Ohio’s polls are to open, neither the office of Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine nor Secretary of State Frank LaRose will answer the simple question of whether Ohio’s election is on or off.

“The only thing more important than a free and fair election is the health and safety of Ohioans,” the duo said in a joint press release just after 9 p.m.

“The Ohio Department of Health and the CDC have advised against anyone gathering in groups larger than 50 people, which will occur if the election goes forward. Additionally, Ohioans over 65 and those with certain health conditions have been advised to limit their nonessential contact with others, affecting their ability to vote or serve as poll workers.
