COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - The American Civil Liberties Union of Ohio is investigating a complaint from a Franklin County voter initially denied an absentee ballot despite providing a utility bill for identification.

Under Ohio law, such a bill along with government checks, paychecks, military identification or other government identification are accepted forms of ID.

The ACLU says the woman finally received a ballot more than a month after she mailed her application, in time to vote.

ACLU Senior Policy Director Mike Brickner has asked the Franklin County Board of Elections to look into the issue to see if other voters were affected, especially voters who might not have challenged the finding.

A message was left with the board seeking comment. Ohio polls open at 6:30 a.m. Tuesday.
