Ohio ranks in middle in Pew study looking at state's election performances

By Stephanie Warsmith Published: February 6, 2013

Ohio fell squarely in the middle of a new Pew study this week that rated states on how well they performed in the 2008 and 2010 elections.

The study, which looked at such factors as wait times, registration problems and use of online tools, identified the best states as Colorado, Delaware, Michigan, Minnesota, North Dakota, Washington and Wisconsin. The worst performers were Alabama, California, Mississippi, New York, Oklahoma, South Carolina and West Virginia.

Pew noted that Ohio had high rates of provisional ballots cast and absentee ballots rejected in 2010 and that the state added a post-audit requirement.

The study will be updated with 2012 data as soon as it is available this year, according to Pew.
