Judge rules Ohio homeless voters may list park benches as addresses

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - A federal judge in Ohio has ruled that counties must allow homeless voters to list park benches and other locations that aren't buildings as their addresses.

U.S. District Judge Edmund Sargus also ruled that provisional ballots can't be invalidated because of poll worker errors.

Monday's ruling resolved the final two pieces of a settlement between the Northeast Ohio Coalition for the Homeless and Secretary of State Jennifer Brunner.

The coalition agreed to drop a constitutional challenge to Ohio's voter identification law until after the Nov. 4 election. In return, Brunner and the coalition agreed on procedures to verify provisional ballots across all Ohio counties.

The coalition was concerned that unequal treatment of provisional ballots would disenfranchise some voters.

What about those that live in cardboard boxes? Can Hobo's use their boxcar? If they spend summers on the park bench and winters under a bridge, can they vote twice?

Using these standards, my dog should be allowed to vote!

This is a travesty. There are some really off the wall judges coming out of the woodwork lately.

They are making a mockery of the election process and the judicial system.

This jerk s/b disbarred for asininery!
