The May 8 Primary Election is fast approaching. Secretary of State Jon Husted’s office reports more than 63,000 Ohioans have already cast early ballots.

Absentee voting in person and by mail began April 10, and ballots can either be returned by mail, or in person at county board of elections offices until the polls close on election night.

A group of Dayton-area residents are holding an event Wednesday to protest state legislation they say limits voting rights.

 

A group is suing Ohio’s Secretary of State, asking the court to order Jon Husted to purge voter rolls in the buckeye state. The group says there are dead people and people who’ve moved on the current voter rolls. Husted does not want to purge the voter rolls the way this group wants him to but is instead sending postcards to everyone whose address is flagged by the postal service, asking them to either cancel their registration if they’ve moved out of state or update their registration if they’ve moved within the state.
