"He filled out his ballot, it was handed off to the postal service, but we don't know what happened to his ballot after that."

Republican Gov. John Kasich of Ohio didn't vote in the 2008 presidential election, an open records request shows. Kasich's office told BuzzFeed News his ballot disappeared after it was given to the postal service.

"He had typically voted absentee and did so again in 2008," a spokesman said. "He filled out his ballot, it was handed off to the postal service, but we don't know what happened to his ballot after that."

BuzzFeed News submitted an open records request for his voting records with the Delaware County Board of Elections, where Kasich lived. The records show his wife, Karen, did vote in the 2008 election.
