“Federal Judge Announces Provisional Ballot Ruling”

EL@M: “Judge Marbley, federal district judge in Ohio, announced from the bench a two-part ruling: (1) based on the federal Constitution, he is extending his “right location, wrong precinct” injunction to cover provisional ballots cast in the wrong polling location (as long as they are cast in the same county in Ohio); and (2) for this year’s election, he is rescinding the NEOCH consent decree insofar as applied to missing names or signatures (or other “ballot affirmation errors”) on provisional ballot envelopes.  He indicated that a written opinion will follow in the next day or two.”

More later as I’m on the road.
