EMERGENCY ORDER POSTPONES OHIO'S PRIMARY ELECTION


The presidential primary election in Ohio has been postponed today.In person voting for Ohio’s primary election is being postponed due to the spread of the Corona Virus.The decision was made late yesterday after two voters over the age of 65 filed a lawsuit to delay voting, since they are considered in an at-risk age group associated with the virus.Franklin County Judge Richard Frye had yesterday declined to halt the election, requested by Governor Dewine, on the grounds he could not overturn the wishes of the state legislature.But Director of Health Dr. Amy Acton used her emergency powers to close all polling locations in Ohio to contain the spread of the infectious virus.Secretary of State Frank LaRose says he will work with the courts to find a way to extend voting options for Ohioans.
