The news is out: [WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Ohio’s top election official declined to loosen restrictions on absentee-ballot drop boxes on Tuesday after a state judge ruled they were “arbitrary and unreasonable” and said local officials should be able to install more if they wish.
The ruling initially appeared to be a victory for Democrats who have pressed for more drop boxes to accommodate voters who don’t want to return absentee ballots by mail in the Nov. 3 presidential election.
But Ohio Secretary of State Frank LaRose, a Republican, will not change rules that only allow one drop box for each of the state’s 88 counties, spokeswoman Maggie Sheehan said.
“Today’s ruling didn’t change anything, and the secretary’s directive remains in place,” she said.]
There is no way to make any sense out of this fiasco. Blame Russia, China and Iran if you must, but, so far, this country has made it on its own to be the laughing stock of the world.
