Independence – Ohio Secretary of State Jon Husted received an award from the Association of the United States Army on Friday, April 19, 2013, recognizing his outreach efforts in military voting. The award was presented to him at the Association of the United States Army conference that took place in Independence, Ohio.

“Making voting easier for military personnel helps to ensure Ohioans serving in the military remain active participants in our democracy no matter where they may be stationed” Secretary Husted said. “I am honored to have received this award and will continue to build upon our successes because the last group of people who should ever be worried if their vote will be counted are those that are fighting for our freedom.”

Since taking office, Secretary Husted has worked to simplify the voting process for military personnel and make important voting information more readily accessible. In August 2011, Secretary Husted launched the Military Ready-to-Vote program, which enables active duty soldiers to more easily register and vote and get reminders about upcoming elections and important deadlines. Additionally, Secretary Husted also established OhioMilitaryVotes.com, a comprehensive hub of information for Ohio’s men and women in uniform.
