Joe Biden Could Be Kicked Off State Ballot 

Daily Report May 23,2024

President Joe Biden may lose the 2024 election before the first votes are cast after reports broke that the president may not even be on the ballots of all 50 states.

Reports emerged on Wednesday that the president may be kicked off the November presidential election ballot in Ohio. The reports emerged after Ohio Secretary of State Frank LaRose issued a Tuesday warning about the president’s eligibility.

Per the state’s law, political parties must certify their presidential candidates at least 90 days before the election day. However, the Democrat party will not officially certify Biden as its official nominee until mid-August, 15 days after Ohio’s deadline.

“I’ve said from here to Colorado that it’s in the best interest of voters to have a choice in the race for president. I’m also duty-bound to follow the law as Ohio’s chief elections officer. As it stands today, the Democratic Party’s presidential nominee will not be on the Ohio ballot,” LaRose wrote on X. “That is not my choice. It’s due to a conflict in the law created by the party, and the party has so far offered no legally acceptable remedy.”

In a letter to the Ohio Democratic party chair, LaRose suggested that the party should change the date by which the party formally nominates Biden or take actions in the Ohio General Assembly to create an exception. The secretary of state, however, noted that the Republican-controlled House —led by Republican House Speaker Jason Stephens— has insisted there won’t be a legislative solution to the matter.

Charles Lutvak, an official of the Biden campaign, issued a statement, assuring Biden supporters that the president would be on the ballot of all 50 states.

“Joe Biden will be on the ballot in all 50 states, and we are assessing next steps accordingly,’ said Charles Lutvak of the Biden campaign. “Election after election, states across the country have acted in line with the bipartisan consensus and taken the necessary steps to ensure the presidential nominees from both parties will be on the ballot,’ he added.
