  Original Published: 9/10/2013The Ohio Supreme Court has ordered the Richland County Board of Elections to reinstate a candidate that was removed from the November 5 General Election Ballot. The board removed Republican candidate Carl Yeager Jr. from the ballot after it was determined he was not a qualified elector in the fifth ward and did not reside at 462 Lily St., the address listed on his voter registration form. Yeager was running against incumbent Democratic councilwoman Pat Hightower. The court ruled Monday the board of elections argument was "inconsistent with the plain language of the statute,". The court also found that the board did not meet requirements by the state to fix the time for hearing any protest and to notify the candidate of the protest and time for a hearing. The board of elections has until Sept. 21 to finalize the ballot.
