The Ohio Secretary of State has dispatched a letter to the Ohio Democratic Celebration warning that Joe Biden may be left off the November election ballot in 2024.

This is unless the Democratic National Convention meets earlier or statutory requirements in the state are changed or exempted. A letter was sent from Ohio Secretary of State Frank LaRose, a Republican, to Ohio Democratic birthday party chair Liz Walters.

Inside the letter, the Democratic National Conference scheduled for August 19, where the party formally nominates its candidate for president, is beyond the August 7 deadline to certify presidential candidates at the Ohio poll.

“I am left to conclude that the Democratic National Committee must either move up its nominating convention or the Ohio General Assembly must act by May 9, 2024 (90 days prior to a new law’s effective date) to create an exception to this statutory requirement,” the legal counsel for Ohio secretary of nation Paul Disantis wrote in the letter.

“Please contact me as soon as possible with any information that can assure this office of timely compliance with Ohio law,” DiSantis wrote.

The Ohio Democratic Party has said they received the letter and are currently reviewing it. The Biden campaign expressed the belief that the president could be on the ballot in November in Ohio.

“We’re monitoring the situation in Ohio, and we’re confident that Joe Biden will be on the ballot in all 50 states,” the campaign said in a statement.

The Ohio General Assembly should skip an exemption waiver before May 9, or the conference would have to be moved earlier, which is not going to be possible given logistics and scheduling problems.

In 2020, the Republican and Democratic parties had conventions beyond Ohio’s deadline. The national lawmakers also shortened the requirement to be named on the ballot from 90 to 60 days before the election.

Trump won Ohio in 2016 and also in 2020 when he lost to Mr. Biden. He became the first losing presidential candidate Ohio has supported since it sided with Richard Nixon over John F. Kennedy in 1960.
