Statement from Secretary Husted on Senate concurrence of SB 135

COLUMBUS – Ohio Secretary of State Jon Husted released a statement in response to the Ohio Senate’s concurrence vote on Senate Bill 135, legislation that will provide funding for the purchase of new voting machines statewide. The following may be attributed to Secretary Husted.
“With today’s concurrence vote in the Ohio Senate, Senate Bill 135 has cleared its final legislative checkpoint and is now headed for the Governor’s desk. I commend Senate President Obhof, Speaker Smith, and Senator LaRose for their leadership on this matter and for working to ensure that Ohio’s 88 counties have new election technology in place well ahead of the 2020 Presidential Election.
“I look forward to working with the county boards to purchase and implement new voting machines once the Governor signs this legislation.”
