    ....may ultimately decide whether to count them or not, based on his ever-changing edicts.  

    This could drag out the OH results for weeks, if not months.  

    This is coordinated, purposeful voter disenfranchisement.  

    Without OH, we must have FL, right?  The only way this doesn't matter is if PBO is comfortably above 270.  

    THAT's why they're pushing provisional ballots in OH.

      Anyone who is entitled to vote on a regular ballot should insist on it. If you're voting in the correct precinct where you have been enrolled and lived (or if you've moved in the last 30 days) and you have voted at least once in the last 8 years, you should be allowed to vote on a regular ballot. Plain and simple, unless you're in a state with ID rules, and then you have to meet those rules, too.

      If there is a database error, have the election judges call up the local clerk or board (whatever is the local procedure). They will locate your actual registration. Then you should be able to vote a regular ballot, though you may be required to sign an affidavit (which is different than a provisional ballot).

      If anyone is being told to use a provisional ballot, it can only be because they don't have the required ID, or their names are not showing up as properly enrolled (and, again, that can usually be cleared up with a phone call).
