Ohio Supreme Court Keeps Democratic Candidate on Primary Ballot

On April 2, the Ohio Supreme Court unanimously ruled that George Maier should remain on the Democratic primary ballot. He is a candidate for Sheriff. His ballot position had been challenged on the grounds that he doesn’t meet the election law qualifications for Sheriff: that the candidate must have been employed within the four years immediately prior to the qualifying date as a highway patrol officer or as a full-time peace officer. That last phrase is vague and has been the subject of many lawsuits over the past decade.

The 12-page decision
is State ex rel Balas-Bratton v Husted, 2014-1406.

The primary is May 6, which is only slightly more than a month away.
