“In Ohio, it’s easy to vote. With thousands of locations to get registered, hundreds of hours to cast your ballot, and three different options for voting, all eligible Ohioans have equal access to one of the best election systems in the country.
Making it easy to vote and hard to cheat is the guiding principle behind my efforts to modernize and improve elections in Ohio.”
-Jon Husted, Ohio Secretary of State
Ohioans have more access to voting than any of our bordering states.
