Any person registered as an elector may be challenged by any qualified elector as to the registered elector's right to vote prior to the nineteenth day before the day of an election. Such qualified elector may, either by appearing in person at the office of the board of elections, or by letter addressed to the board, challenge the right of such registered elector to vote. Any such challenge must state the ground upon which the challenge is made, and must be signed by the challenger giving the challenger's address and voting precinct. If the board is satisfied, in accordance with division (B) of section 3503.24 of the Revised Code, that the challenge is well taken, the director shall so indicate on the registration cards and shall so notify in writing the judges of the precinct. If such challenged person offers to vote at such election , the challenged person shall be examined as in the case of an original challenge. If such person establishes, to the satisfaction of the judges , that the person's disabilities have been removed and that the person has a right to vote, the person shall be permitted to vote.
