If you want to register to vote in Ohio, you need to go to your local election board to do that. But a bill by Republican State Senator Frank LaRose would allow Ohioans to register to vote online. It would also give voters the opportunity to request an absentee ballot online. And it would use technology to improve the exchange of voter data among states and state agencies. Republican Secretary of State Jon Husted says this is a good bill.
Early in-person voting begins tomorrow (Tuesday) in Ohio, at the same time county board of elections are preparing to mail out hundreds of thousands of mail-in ballots. For Ohio Public Radio, WKSU’s M.L. Schultze has more on the big demands of an upcoming big election.
