Secretary of State Husted Statement on Photo ID Legislation

COLUMBUS – The following may be attributed in whole or in part to Secretary of State Jon Husted regarding the photo identification legislation pending in the General Assembly.

“I want to be perfectly clear, when I began working with the General Assembly to improve Ohio’s elections system it was never my intent to reject valid votes. I would rather have no bill than one with a rigid photo identification provision that does little to protect against fraud and excludes legally registered voters' ballots from counting.

“It is in the hands of the General Assembly.”
