Statement from Ohio Secretary of State Jon Husted

For Immediate Release

COLUMBUS - Regarding today’s decision by a three-judge panel of the 6th Circuit Court of Appeals, all of the following may be attributed to Ohio Secretary of State Jon Husted, who plans to appeal the case the court for an en banc review:

“This case is about Ohioans’ right to vote for the public officials that make the rules and laws we live under, and yet, this ruling eliminates elected officials’ ability to do what we elected them to do. That’s wrong and I must appeal this case.

“Whether we vote 35 or 28 days, by mail or in person this November, elected officials and not federal judges should be making Ohio law.”
