STATEMENT FROM OHIO SECRETARY OF STATE JON HUSTED

COLUMBUS – Regarding today's unanimous decision by the Ohio Supreme Court in the case of Lucas County Republican Party v. Husted, all of the following may be attributed to Ohio Secretary of State Jon Husted:

“This unanimous decision closes a dark and dysfunctional chapter at the Lucas County Board of Elections and establishes a solid foundation for brighter days ahead.

“The culture of chaos that persisted at the Lucas County Board of Elections is now history and we can build a new future based on competence and cooperation. I am happy for the taxpayers of Lucas County, it's time to move on."

“I fully expect that the current board members will ensure integrity in the process and deliver well-run elections to fulfill the mission of making it easy to vote and hard to cheat in Ohio.”
