From Ballot Access News by Richard Winger:
On March 1, the Ohio Libertarian Party filed two lawsuits in state trial court. One attacks the law that says the Ohio Election Commission will never have any members of parties other than the two largest parties. The other lawsuit challenges the failure of the Ohio Election Commission to enforce the law, when the Ohio Debates Commission barred the Libertarian 2018 gubernatorial candidate from debates and didn’t set out any objective criteria for those debates.
The law provides that members of the commission will consist of four members of the largest parties, four members of the second-largest party, and one person who is not a member of any party. Therefore, no member of any other party may ever be a member of the Commission.
