After Ohio Court Declares Ohio Counties Can Have Multiple Drop Boxes Per County, Ohio SOS LaRose Troublingly Directs Counties Not to Set Up Drop Boxes

This is quite odd. The court decision was a declaratory judgment that the one drop box per county rule was arbitrary and contrary to law. The court did not back up the declaration with an injunction because SOS LaRose has said he’d stand by a court ruling. But now LaRose is saying that counties still cannot add drop boxes.

It’s not clear what the legal basis is for this. As a matter of Remedies law, a declaratory judgment is implicitly coercive. If LaRose won’t follow the declaration, it can be followed by a court order.

Awaiting further clarification here.
