Registering Park Benches as Addresses in Ohio

US District Judge Edmund Sargus of Columbus, Ohio ruled that counties must allow their homeless voters the option to enter park benches and various other locations that aren’t considered dwellings or buildings, as their “addresses”.

In addition, the Judge ruled that provisional ballots can’t be invalidated because of poll worker errors.

The seemingly puzzling battle between the Northeast Ohio Coalition for the Homeless and Secretary of State Jennifer Brunner was handed its two final pieces via Monday’s ruling.

It’s encouraging to know that homeless citizens have rights too. I wonder if they’re Democrat or Republican!
