CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) –
Seventeen year-olds can vote in Ohio’s primary but only if they registered in time.
Cuyahoga County Board of Elections Director says this last minute decision has caused some confusion.
“You know it is time that these courts make these decisions prior to the final days of elections. It makes it very difficult for us when we get last minute court decisions and changes in the election administration that effects us on election day. So it would be nice if all this litigation could be done 60 days prior to the election,” said Patrick McDonald.
About 70 ballots were returned so far and McDonald says they put them aside, just in case. Now poll workers will open those ballots and count them.
He doesn’t expect a rush Tuesday.
