Association of the United States Army to Honor Secretary of State Husted
COLUMBUS – Ohio Secretary of State Jon Husted has been selected to receive an award from the Association of the United States Army recognizing his efforts in military voting outreach. The award presentation will take place during the Association’s conference tomorrow, Friday, April 19, 2013, in Northeast Ohio.
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.
Media are welcome to attend the event.
