Political lines drawn in ballot dispute

Posted by joncraig at 9/17/2008 7:34 PM EDT
This year's election challenges could rival those leading up to the 2004 presidential election, in which the nation looked to Ohio for the final outcome.

For a second time in a week, Republicans filed a lawsuit in the Ohio Supreme Court against Democratic Secretary of State Jennifer Brunner. Today's suit challenged Brunner's recommendation that county Boards of Election reject certain absentee-ballot applications produced by Sen. John McCain's campaign if a box was not marked. Here is Brunner's Sept. 5 memorandum to county Boards of Elections and a related directive.

The lawsuit was filed by two Hamilton County voters who requested absentee ballots using McCain's form but had their applications rejected: Betty R. Smith, 77, of Anderson Township and William Myles of Bridgetown.

Smith thinks the county Board of Elections should have approved her original application: "They're trying to mess things up someplace,'' Smith said in an interview. "It doesn't make sense."


The voters are represented by Cincinnati attorneys James E. Burke and Charles M. Miller of the Keating, Muething & Klekamp law firm who filed and will argue the case.

Did you catch the name of the law firm representing the GOP?
