On June 26, Ohio Governor John Kasich signed HB 509, which extends the deadline for certain qualified parties to certify their presidential and vice-presidential candidates. The old law required the certification in early August, but now it is in early September. The bill only applies to parties that polled 20% of the vote in the last election. Other qualified parties still have the August deadline. There is no practical harm done to the qualified minor parties from being excluded from the bill, because they will all have their national conventions by mid-July.
