|Ohio Secretary of Sate Jon Husted|
Ohio is the key state – the winner here most likely will be the next president.
And things are taking a very bad turn there right now, as this report explains:
A last-minute directive issued by Ohio Secretary of State Jon Husted (R) could invalidate legal provisional ballots.
Ohio is widely viewed as the most critical state for both presidential campaigns and — with some polls showing a close race — the 11th-hour move could swing the entire election.
The directive, issued Friday, lays out the requirements for submitting a provisional ballot.
The directive includes a form which puts the burden on the voter to correctly record the form of ID provided to election officials. Husted also instructed election officials that if the form is not filled out correctly by a voter, the ballot should not be counted.
The chances of no election finality for several days or weeks have just jumped substantially.
If you thought Al Gore's Florida problems were the end of voting shenanigans, hold on to your hat.
Ohio could make Florida look rather tame.
