Independents and alternative parties swing Ohio US Congressional District 15

Ballot Access News reports:

On Sunday, December 7, the Ohio provisional ballots in the 15th U.S. House race were finally all counted. Democratic nominee Mary Jo Kilroy won with 45.91%. Republican nominee Steve Stivers received 45.15%. The remaining 8.94% was split between Libertarian Mark Noble, independent Don Elijah Eckhart, and declared write-in candidate Travis Casper. Check back to see their votes.

This outcome is somewhat surprising, because Republicans had prevailed in the Ohio Supreme Court on whether provisional ballots must include both the voter’s signature and the voter’s printed name on the outer envelope. Generally, the convention wisdom was that the excluded ballots would be more likely to help Democrats than Republicans.
