If you’re an Ohio resident voting for a Democrat in next Tuesday’s winner take all primary, you’re good to go. If you live in the Buckeye State and plan to vote for a Republican, you’re probably going to be perplexed by the ballot.

Cleveland Fox affiliate WJW outlines the problem:

There are two boxes on the ballot for delegates, one representing the contest for at-large delegates and one for district delegates. According to the Cuyahoga County Board of Elections, only the first box representing the at-large delegates will count in the “winner take all primary,” although both boxes will still be counted.

But, as this viral video by iVoter reveals, there are still questions:

When the county board was asked about the layout, it released a statement reading:

The Republican primary ballot appears the way that it has always appeared. This is set by state law. The ballot layout is identical to that used in the 2012 presidential primary and all presidential primaries prior to.

Ah, that explains everything. If you find the layout confusing, you should comfort in the fact that it’s always been confusing.

And who said big government isn’t great?
