Statement from Ohio Secretary of State Jon Husted

COLUMBUS – Ohio Secretary of State Jon Husted released a statement in response to today’s Ohio Senate passage of Senate Bill 135, legislation that will provide funding for the purchase of new voting machines statewide. The following may be attributed to Secretary Husted:
 
“Ohio is a national leader in elections administration because we focus on making our state a place where it’s easy to vote and hard to cheat. To maintain that status, we must continue to modernize by investing in innovation and that means replacing our voting machines.

“Today’s overwhelming bipartisan vote in the Ohio Senate moves us closer to that goal. I commend Senate President Larry Obhof and Senator Frank LaRose for their leadership on this issue and thank those lawmakers who supported the bill. I’m hopeful the Ohio House will soon follow suit.”
