"Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine tweeted late Monday night that polls would be closed as a matter of a public health emergency as the state seeks to further press its legal case in court to extend primary voting to June 2.
"During this time when we face an unprecedented public health crisis, to conduct an election tomorrow would force poll workers and voters to place themselves at an unacceptable health risk of contracting coronavirus, " DeWine tweeted.. "As such, @DrAmyActon will order the polls closed as a health emergency. While the polls will be closed tomorrow, Secretary of State @FrankLaRose will seek a remedy through the courts to extend voting options so that every voter who wants to vote will be granted that opportunity."
Just a few hours earlier, Franklin County, Ohio judge denied the state’s request to postpone until June 2 its primary voting originally slated for Tuesday.
The 11th hour showdown is unfolding in the wake of a national emergency surrounding coronavirus and a two-person race to become the Democratic nominee."
