There was supposed to be four states voting today, but now it appears only three will be heading to the polls amid the Coronavirus crackdown on public gatherings and spaces.

Primary voting in Ohio was thrown into chaos days ago when Gov. Mike DeWine ordered the primary be delayed until June 2. The governor’s order was challenged in court, and overturned, but then DeWine stated his administration would delay the primary based on the authority of declaring a public health crisis. As it stands today, no in-person voting is taking place in Ohio and the primary is effectively delayed, likely until the June 2 date, though the details remain unclear.

Ohio

Primary voting in Ohio has been thrown into chaos, as NBC News reports:

Ohio’s Tuesday primary was called off at the last minute on Monday night due to a health emergency posed by the coronavirus.

The election was thrust into chaos on Monday after Gov. Mike DeWine said the state would not open polls because of the coronavirus outbreak. His comments come after a judge declined to postpone the contest until June.

“During this time when we face an unprecedented public health crisis, to conduct an election tomorrow would force poll workers and voters to place themselves at an unacceptable health risk of contracting coronavirus,” DeWine said in a statement posted to Twitter.

The Ohio secretary of state’s office said all voters who have already cast early ballots or voted by mail will still have their ballots count, whether or not the election is delayed.

There isn’t much precedent for this action perhaps with an exception for a natural disaster, but that usually entails longer polling hours or changed polling locations. We will know more about Ohio’s primary voting in the coming days with the likelihood that the primary is rescheduled to June.
