OH: Voting Disqualifies Independent Candidate for Mayor

From The Chronicle Telegram:
Tim Quinn, who is running for mayor of Elyria as an independent, voted in the city’s Democratic primary earlier this month, a move that could cost him his place on the November ballot.

Lorain County Board of Elections Director Paul Adams said that according to the Ohio Secretary of State’s Office, independent candidates aren’t supposed to vote in partisan primaries after filing to run as independents. They are also barred from being members of a political party’s central or executive committees when they declare themselves independents.
