A Reversal On Ballot Boxes

A federal judge temporarily blocks an order by Ohio’s elections chief that limits the number of ballot drop boxes available in next month’s election, calling the move essential to vindicate a vital constitutional right. Secretary of State, Frank LaRose moved immediately to appeal. This latest decision marks the second time in recent weeks that a court has ruled against LaRose’s directive, restricting ballot drop boxes to a single location in each county in the presidential battleground state. A voting rights group, keen on expanding access to the boxes…which voters see as an attractive option amid concerns over Postal Service cuts and coronavirus…had asked the court to reopen its case after LaRose said the judge’s ruling was expressly contrary to LaRose’s intent. With that…three courts have now scolded LaRose for the original drop box directive, calling it unreasonable and arbitrary. A state appellate court made clear he had the authority to remedy the order under law.
