Biden might encounter difficulties to be on Ohio’s ballot – Secretary of state


The Ohio secretary of state says that President Biden might have trouble getting on the 2024 election ballot in Ohio unless Democrats make changes or the state legislature acts.

Ohio law says that there is an August. The deadline to officially approve a presidential candidate for the Democratic National Convention is coming up. The convention, where the party’s nominees for president and vice-president are chosen, will start in August this year. Please rephrase the following text in simpler language.

Paul Disantis, who is the top lawyer for the Ohio secretary of state, explained how Biden can be included on the ballot in a letter to Ohio Democratic Party Chairwoman Liz Walters.

“I believe that the Democratic National Committee needs to change the date of its nominating convention, or the Ohio General Assembly needs to make a new law by May 9, 2024 to make an exception to this rule,” wrote Disantis.

“We are investigating,” said Matt Keyes, who is the Ohio Democratic Party Communications Director, to the media on Saturday.

A person speaking for Biden’s team said they are keeping an eye on what’s happening in Ohio, and they believe Joe Biden will be a candidate in all 50 states.

In 2020, Donald Trump won Ohio by more than eight percent against Biden.
