About 300 Ohio voters get ballot with errors


MEDINA, Ohio (AP) -- About 290 early voters are being asked to vote again in an Ohio county where ballots listed incorrect U.S. House candidates.

The director of the Medina County Board of Elections on Friday told the Akron Beacon Journal (http://bit.ly/wSZ4hk) that the board had not been properly informed after the state changed the boundaries for two Congressional districts, so certain ballots were printed with the wrong information

Republican, Democratic and Libertarian voters in 21 precincts were affected.

The board plans to have accurate ballots set up by Wednesday. All affected voters will be notified by mail and issued new ballots.

Ohio redrew its Congressional map last year, a process done once per decade to reflect population shifts identified in the U.S. Census.
