“Top Ohio Democrat Warns On Cincinnati Balloting”


Ohio’s state Senate Minority Leader, Democratic Sen. Eric Kearney, complained Tuesday that poor voters are being “pushed” to cast provisional ballots in inner-city Cincinnati, saying people in the traditionally African-American, poor neighborhoods are being “pushed” to cast the alternative ballots that won’t be counted for at least 11 days.

“People are being pushed to provisional ballots unnecessarily when they should be able to vote a regular ballot — the percentage is way up at certain key polling locations,” Kearney told BuzzFeed of inner-city locations in Cincinnati on Tuesday.

A spokesman from Ohio Secretary of State Jon Husted’s office, however, said they had not received any complaints regarding the use of provisional ballots in Cincinnati.
