Good afternoon. Here are the latest news and updates that our team at Future Majority is tracking.
Confusion in Ohio as states hold primaries today amidst coronavirus.
Tuesday March 17th was a day meant for primaries in four states, but at the last minute voters will not have the opportunity to head to the polls in Ohio. Governor Mike DeWine called off the elections due to the risk of coronavirus spreading at crowded polling locations. A judge ruled against the closing but the Governor called off and postponed the elections by declaring a health emergency. Voters who already cast early ballots will have their votes counted at the primary’s later date.
Primaries in Arizona, Florida and Illinois will go on today as planned. We’ll have an analysis of what happens in tomorrow’s roundup.
