COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) – The Ohio Supreme Court has ordered officials to throw out 1,000 provisional ballots that had been improperly filled out by voters in a tight congressional race.

In a 4-2 decision on Friday, the court struck down Secretary of State Jennifer Brunner’s directive saying such votes should be counted.
