Ohio: county elections board revokes prosecutor's voter registration because of non-residency

The Coshocton Tribune reports: The Morgan County Board of Elections has determined Prosecutor Rick Welch is not a qualified elector and his right to vote in the county has been revoked.

Now the acting county prosecutor will be reviewing whether further action should be taken after it was determined Welch does not live in the county.

Welch withdrew from the March primary on Tuesday after a complaint was filed with the elections board concerning his residency. The elections board met with a special prosecutor and a representative with Secretary of State Jennifer Brunner to discuss the matter on Wednesday.

Welch, who has been prosecutor since 2000, sent a letter to the board members stating he was withdrawing from the race due to his becoming a "catalyst for division and not unity." -- Coshocton Tribune - www.coshoctontribune.com - Coshocton, OH
