Ohio has postponed its primary, citing a health emergency. Dr. Amy Acton, the state’s health director, has ordered all polls closed in today’s primary election in response to the coronavirus pandemic. The move came late Monday, at around 10pm, after a Franklin County judge rejected a request by Gov. Mike DeWine and Secretary of State Frank LaRose to postpone in-person voting. DeWine said people shouldn’t have to choose between their health and their constitutional rights. In-person voting for Ohio’s primary will now take place on June 2nd.
