Statement from Secretary Husted on House Passage of Senate Bill 135

COLUMBUS – Ohio Secretary of State Jon Husted released a statement in response to today’s Ohio House of Representatives 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.
 
“Today’s House passage of Senate Bill 135 puts Ohio on track to update its election technology well ahead of the 2020 Presidential Election. We’ve worked hard in recent years to make Ohio a national leader in elections administration, and the purchase of new voting machines across all 88 counties will help us to continue that effort.
 
“I commend Speaker Smith for making this measure a priority and bringing it before the chamber for a vote. I’m hopeful the Senate will soon concur with House changes and quickly send the bill to the Governor’s desk.”
