Ohio Raises Concerns Over Biden’s Eligibility for Its November 5 Ballot

Due to a potential conflict in Ohio law, President Joe Biden’s appearance on the Ohio ballot for the November election could be in jeopardy. The issue arises from the timing of the Democrat National Committee Convention, scheduled for August 19, which is 12 days after Ohio’s deadline of August 7 for candidates to be placed on the November presidential election ballot.

This discrepancy has prompted discussions about possibly moving the DNC Convention date or urging the Ohio Legislature to amend the law to accommodate Biden’s candidacy on the November 5 ballot.

Ohio Secretary of State Frank LaRose, a Republican, highlighted this issue in a letter to Ohio Democratic Party Chair Liz Walters, noting the need for action by either the DNC to adjust its convention schedule or the Ohio General Assembly to legislate an exception.

The General Assembly would need to act by May 9, 2024, to allow sufficient time for a new law to take effect 90 days before its implementation.

The Ohio Democratic Party has acknowledged the conflict but expressed confidence that Biden will secure his spot on the ballot in Ohio, a critical swing state in presidential elections. The Biden campaign has also responded, monitoring the situation and expressing assurance that Biden will appear on the ballot in all 50 states.

This development adds an absorbing layer to the election dynamics, especially given former President Donald Trump’s emphasis on Ohio as a bellwether state.

Trump’s victories in Ohio in the 2016 and 2020 elections have underscored the state’s in the broader electoral college context and the strategic importance of ensuring Biden’s presence on the Ohio ballot for the Democrats.
