Ohio was scheduled to have a primary election on Tuesday, March 17, but Gov. Mike DeWine is suggesting it be moved to June 2 after he barred in-person voting.


“It is clear that tomorrow’s in-person voting does not conform, and cannot conform with these CDC guidelines. We cannot conduct this election tomorrow," he said in a statement.

Intercept reporter Daniel Medina explained that DeWine can't technically force the state to do it, he's basically asking the judiciary not to sue. There's a chance of a lawsuit from someone who is being forced to choose between their vote and their health.
