COLUMBUS – Regarding his decision to break the tie vote of the Hamilton County Board of Elections in favor of further appeal in Hunter v. Hamilton County Board of Elections, all of the following may be attributed to Secretary of State Jon Husted:
“I am concerned about the continuing involvement of the federal court in prescribing which ballots should and should not be counted in a county judicial race in Ohio.
“As Ohio’s chief elections officer, I maintain that it is of utmost importance that we take this stand to preserve the authority of state law to govern state elections, as interpreted by the Ohio Supreme Court.”
