Ohio AG Shuts Down Dem Attempt To Skirt Election Deadline, Get Joe On The Ballot

Dave Yost, the Attorney General of Ohio, rejected attempts by state Democrats to get around a key election deadline and get President Joe Biden on the ballot, Fox News Digital reported. According to that outlet, the AG’s office, Ohio Secretary of State Frank LaRose, and Donald McTigue, the attorney who is representing the Democrat effort to get Biden on the ballot, show that AG Yost rejected efforts from the Democrats to get around Ohio’s deadline.

As background, earlier in April, Secretary of State LaRose warned Democrats that, as the Democratic National Convention won’t occur until after Ohio’s August 7 deadline for certifying the presidential candidates passes, either the Ohio legislature will have to change the law or Democrats will have to change their convention plans, or Biden won’t appear on the ballot.

The Democrats then responded through McTigue, Fox News Digital reports, arguing in a letter that the Ohio Secretary of State has the authority to accept a provision certification before the official certification, which would mean Biden and Harris could get on the ballot before their official certification at the Democrat Convention.

AG Yost’s office shot down that plan in a letter released on Monday, April 15. In the statement, AG Yost’s office rejected the idea that a provisional certification is allowed in Ohio under its laws, saying, “The Democratic Party’s notion of providing a ‘provisional certification’ by the statutory deadline simply is not provided for by law.”
