OH: Signs Measure Ensuring Biden Appears on the Fall Ballot

Source: US News & World Report

“Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine has signed a measure to ensure President Joe Biden will appear on the state ballot in November. DeWine, a Republican, signed the measure — which relaxes a state candidate filing deadline — Sunday along with a related bill that imposes a ban on foreign nationals contributing to state ballot campaigns. Both will take effect Aug. 31. The Republican-dominated Legislature had approved the two measures last week during a rare special session. … the Democratic National Committee moved to neutralize the need for any vote in Ohio. In tandem with the Biden campaign, it announced this week that it would solve Biden’s problem with Ohio’s ballot deadline itself by holding a virtual roll call vote to nominate him. A committee vote on that work-around is set for Tuesday.” (06/03/24)
