Statement From Secretary of State Jon Husted
Columbus – Regarding today’s federal court decision in Obama v. Husted, all of the following may be attributed to Ohio Secretary of State Jon Husted.
“I am pleased that the federal court has affirmed what I have long advocated -- that all voters, no matter where they live, should have the same opportunity to vote. Thankfully, uniformity and equality won the day.
“When it comes to voting days and hours, I have urged uniformity, bipartisanship and certainty – so that all Ohioans can know the rules for voting well in advance of the election.
“Absent legislative action to set hours, I had adopted by directive the only bipartisan schedule that has been offered. Now that the court has ruled, I will follow the decision.”
