Statement From Ohio Secretary of State Jon Husted

Columbus – Today the PEW Charitable Trusts released its 2012 Election Performance Index Study, an independent, non-partisan national report that highlights the significant progress Ohio has made in making it easy to vote and hard to cheat. All of the following may be attributed to Ohio Secretary of State Jon Husted:

“Here we have yet another independent and nonpartisan national group calling attention to significant improvements we've made in how we run elections on Ohio. 

“Ohioans can be proud that we’ve made it both easy to vote and hard to cheat. Between 2008 and 2012, absentee voting was up and wait times were down in no small part due to our decision to send absentee ballot request forms to all registered voters.

“One important area where we are behind other states is in enacting full online voter registration. I once again urge the General Assembly to pass an online voter registration bill. This simple reform is long overdue--it is more convenient for voters, improves election integrity and saves tax dollars.”
