Ohio Just Postponed Its Primary Election Because Of COVID-19

The state's primary election has been postponed from its scheduled date of Tuesday (March 17) in an effort to protect residents from the threat of COVID-19, the illness caused by the novel coronavirus, which is a droplet vector virus and is highly contagious. Experts have advised that people practice social distancing while the virus continues its spread, but doing so — and maintaining at least 6 feet's distance from another person — can be almost impossible at polling places.
