    Pertinent quote:

    Meanwhile, counties that were confused about whether to validate provisional ballots that don't have voters' dates of birth on them were told Friday by the secretary of state's office in a conference call to allow those ballots.

    Cuyahoga County elections board director Michael Vu said there had been confusion over whether missing birth dates made the ballots invalid.

    "We're counting those now," he said.

    Provisionals were cast by people who say they are registered to vote but whose names did not appear on rolls on Election Day. Ohio election officials are now processing the state's 155,337 provisional ballots. If the registration information is verified, the ballots will be counted by board members by the Dec. 1 deadline.
