“From an administrative standpoint, the 2016 Presidential Election was the smoothest and most efficient our state has seen in over a decade,” Secretary Husted said, “While other states struggled, Ohio again emerged as a leader in election administration, much thanks due to hard-working, bipartisan teams at each of the 88 county boards of elections.”

Secretary Husted made stops on Election Day in Cincinnati, Columbus and Dayton where he visited polling places, met with election officials, and appeared on various media outlets to encourage Ohioans to participate in the 2016 Presidential Election. The Secretary also did interviews over Skype with outlets in Cleveland, Toledo, Lima and Youngstown.
