OH Hse-43: Dyer (D) To Introduce Absentee Ballot Bill
In the wake of news that over 200 absentee ballots arrived at the Summit County Board of Elections too late to be counted in last week's primary election, State Rep. Stephen Dyer (D-Green) announced today that he will introduce legislation that would require all absentee ballot postmarked before Election Day to be counted without regard to date of receipt.
“In light of what happened in Summit County last Tuesday, I felt we needed to ensure that all votes are counted,” Rep. Dyer said. “A post office mistake should not cost anyone their constitutional right to vote.”
