“Sanders lawsuit: Ohio official changed law to block 17-year-olds from voting”

CNN:

Bernie Sanders’ campaign on Tuesday sued Ohio Secretary of State Jon Husted, accusing the Republican of quietly changing a law in an effort to block 17-year-olds from voting in the state’s presidential primary next week.

Husted, however, insisted that there had been no change in the law.

Richard Winger:

The Secretary of State believes that the law does not apply to presidential primaries, because presidential primaries are really elections for Delegate to national conventions. However, the Secretary’s stance on this contradicts what he has told the press about whether the Ohio sore loser law and the Ohio law on affiliation of independent candidates apply to presidential primaries.
