Biden About To Be Removed From 2024 Ballot!

In Ohio, a battleground state, Democratic President Joe Biden is up against a significant obstacle to ballot access.

Ohio’s possibly serious election issue surfaced while Democrats were busy applauding Biden’s recent fundraising triumphs.

The president might have problems getting his name on Ohio’s general election ballot, according to ABC News.

A recent letter that was written on Friday to the chair of the state’s Democratic Party described the situation in detail.

According to the Columbus Dispatch, the Ohio Secretary of State’s office informed Democratic Party chair Liz Walters last week that Biden would not be permitted to be on the ballot unless a state law is amended or the national party convention is conducted earlier than currently scheduled.

On August 19, the Democratic National Convention is scheduled to pick their candidate for 2024.

But according to Ohio law, in order for the person’s name to appear on the state ballot in November, that designation needs to be made by August 7.

As the Dispatch pointed out, considering all of the planning that goes into an event that size, a rescheduling of the convention is extremely unlikely.

As an alternative, the Ohio legislature might move more quickly to approve a new legislation by May 9.

The bill would enable the Democrats to guarantee the inclusion of their nominee on the state general election ballot by facilitating a waiver.

Paul Disantis, Ohio Secretary of State Frank LaRose’s legal counsel, sent the state party chairman a letter outlining the current situation:

“I am left to conclude that the Democratic National Committee must either move up its nominating convention or the Ohio General Assembly must act by May 9, 2024, to create an exception to this statutory requirement.”

In his letter, Disantis urged swift action.

He told the state Democratic Party head:

“Please contact me as soon as possible with any information that can assure this office of timely compliance with Ohio law.”

“We’re looking into it,” a Walters and state party representative said.

ABC News was informed by a Biden campaign representative that:

“We’re monitoring the situation in Ohio and we’re confident that Joe Biden will be on the ballot in all 50 states.”

Ohio has traditionally been seen as a crucial swing state in elections for president.

But as Fox News points out, there has been a change in Ohio in recent years.

The state saw a noticeable tilt to the right beginning in 2016, supporting Donald Trump as the nominee at the time.

Ohio cast a sizable Trump vote in 2020 as well.

Nonetheless, some observers think that Ohio may undergo yet another major transformation around 2024.

Voters’ fears about abortion rights following the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision to overturn the Roe v. Wade precedent may have contributed to the change.

Opinion leaders in politics continue to differ on how things will probably turn out this time.

There’s no denying that there are huge stakes, therefore Democrats will be under a lot of pressure to guarantee that Biden appears on the ballot this autumn.
