Despite Trump Tweet, Ohioans Can Not Change An Already Cast Ballot

Oct 27, 2020

President Trump is advocating that people who previously voted for Democratic Presidential candidate Joe Biden change their vote.

But Ohioans cannot do that. Ohio Public Radio's Jo Ingles reports.

Trump’s tweet might give voters the notion that they can change their vote once it has been cast. But Jen Miller with the League of Women Voters of Ohio says that’s not the case in this state. 

 

"In Ohio, there are no do-overs. Once you cast your vote, that’s how you vote. You can’t change votes after the fact.” 

 

Miller says Minnesota, New York and Pennsylvania are among the states that allow early voters to change their ballots. And Pennsylvania is a state Trump has been targeting recently. Polls show the race there is like Ohio – neck and neck.
