Guest Blogged by John Gideon of VotersUnite.org Ohio counties were required, in the March primary, by the SOS, to have paper ballots on hand, at each polling place, for any voter who wanted to use them and in case there were problems with DRE voting machines. Secretary Brunner wants the same thing for the general election. The difference may be that counties will have to actually ensure those ballots are at the precincts and that the voters are told they have an option. The Ohio Association of Election Officials is making excuses for those counties that do not already have paper ballots and they are fighting any directives from the SOS....
