Ohio Polls Close In Coronavirus Scare
Tuesday, March 17, 2020

Ohio’s top health official ordered the polls closed over concerns about the coronavirus, hours before voters were supposed begin casting ballots in the state’s presidential primary.

Ohio Governor, Mike DeWine announced the decision late Monday after a judge had ruled against his request that in-person voting be delayed because crowds at polling places Tuesday could put people at unacceptable risk of catching and spreading the virus.

DeWine added that Secretary of State Frank LaRose would try to find a way to “extend voting options” through the courts. LaRose, late Monday, directed all 88 Ohio county boards of elections to comply with Dr. Amy Acton’s order, culminating in an in-person election June 2nd.
