If Secretary of State, Frank LaRose wants to expand the number of ballot drop boxes beyond one per Ohio county, he can. But a state appellate court won’t force him to do so. That was the essence of a ruling that left both sides in a legal fight over LaRose’s one-dropbox-per-county order with their glass half full. Or perhaps half empty. Curbside dropoff of ballots has been a growing trend across the U.S. amid the coronavirus pandemic and cutbacks at the U.S. Postal Service.
