Romney’s Election Official Jon Husted and Governor Kasich Continue Voter Suppression in Ohio with Voting Obstacles

“The bottom line is that (Secretary of State Jon Husted) designed a form that violates Ohio law by improperly shifting to voters the poll workers’ information-recording responsibilities regarding ID to voters, and then he wants to trash votes where there is a problem with the form on the section he misassigned to voters,” said Cleveland attorney Subodh Chandra, who filed the motion.

Husted spokesman Matt McClellan said the Friday directive actually was designed to concur with the Oct. 26 order of U.S. District Court Judge Algenon L. Marbley in a legal dispute over provisional ballots.

Voters will complete the same form they did in the March primary and August special elections.

As with regular voting, a voter can provide various forms of ID for the provisional ballot or write down the last four digits of their Social Security number.
