On Wednesday, the Ohio House of Representatives passed two draconian bills to further their anti-voter agenda in our state.
Their desire to make voting much harder (in order to make elections easier for them to win) is so obvious that three major Ohio newspapers called on them to stop pushing through these anti-voter laws.
One bill, Senate Bill 238, will reduce the number of days available for you and others to vote. In today’s busy world, we should be increasing, not cutting, the number of voting days so we need to come together and stop this assault on our voting rights now.
The other bill, Senate Bill 205, will also severely limit our chance to vote using by forcing counties to stop sending registered voters applications for absentee ballots.
This bill prevents local election officials from helping a voter complete any part of an absentee ballot application, ID envelopes, or absentee ballot. If a mistake happens, the election official cannot help, but instead will be required to toss out a valid vote on a technicality.
These bills are rapidly on their way to Gov. Kasich’s desk right now, where he has the option to either sign or veto them.
Access to the ballot box and the opportunity for working people to easily register and exercise their right to vote, should remain a staple of our democracy.
It’s crucial that Gov. Kasich vetoes these bills in order to keep Ohio’s elections fair and open.
