Ohio Secretary of State Frank LaRose will announce the number of absentee ballots requested but not received at local boards of elections by Election Day so Ohioans will know how many valid outstanding votes might still need counted.
LaRose on Tuesday said Tuesday that highlighting that information will give people an idea of how close races are after the polls close on Nov. 3.
It will be the first time Ohioans will see that information on the state’s election night reporting website.
This should be the rule everywhere. Great idea!
