The Ohio Secretary of State's counsel sent a letter to the state Democratic Party regarding a potential conflict with state law regarding the Democratic Party nominees for US president (ABC6, AP). The attorney noted that the Democratic National Convention, where the party will officially nominate its candidates for president and vice president, is scheduled to take place after the deadline applicable to the Democratic Party for certifying the party's candidates for the ballot (ABC News, Ohio Revised Code §3505.10, see (B)(1)). For the purposes of this question, legislation will be considered to have become law upon being filed by the governor in the office of the secretary of state, in accordance with Article II, Section 1c of the Ohio constitution (Ohio Constitution).
