Ohio 12th US House Distr. Spec. Election

Postby Marie » Tue Aug 07, 2018 7:26 pm

The Republican candidate tripped over his di*k in the waning days of the campaign when he blurted out to a rural audience, referring to his democratic opponent, that, "We don’t want someone from Franklin County representing us." Because here's the thing: 60 PERCENT OF HIS VOTERS live in Franklin County! This guy has a great shot at inheriting the Trump mantle. :grin:

Anyway. here's where you can follow the returns as they come in throughout the evening:

The morning after:
"The race is still too close to call, with 3,435 provisional ballots yet to be counted.

Ohio law calls for an automatic recount if the two candidates are ultimately separated by less than half a percentage point."

Ohio 12th: 'Too close to call' results just got tighter

2 days after "Too close to call" election:
Ohio finds nearly 600 uncounted votes in too-close-to-call special election
This week’s congressional election between Republican Troy Balderson and Democrat Danny O’Connor just got even closer.

The Huffington Post
8/09/2018

OHIO OFFICIALS have discovered 588 uncounted votes in this week’s special election for the 12th Congressional District, further tightening the already too-close-to-call race.

“The votes from a portion of one voting location had not been processed into the tabulation system,” the Franklin County Board of Elections said in a press release Wednesday.

The uncounted votes were from a Columbus suburb.

Prior to the discovery, Republican Troy Balderson led Democrat Danny O’Connor by more than 1,700 votes. With the 588 votes included, the margin narrows to 1,564, according to the Cincinnati Enquirer. President Donald Trump prematurely declared victory for Balderson on Tuesday night. But O’Connor said he won’t concede until all the votes are counted.

The O'Connor campaign is waiting for 1,722 provisional ballots and 1,750 absentee ballots to be tallied, a spokesperson told HuffPost on Tuesday night.

Whatever happens in this special election, the two candidates will meet again in the November general election. The Franklin County Board of Elections will certify the final results on Aug. 24.
