Ohio Statehouse Update: Week in Review — August 31, 2012

1. Ohio voting update

Ohio Secretary of State Jon Husted has announced that this week more than six million applications to vote absentee in the November 6 election will be mailed to Ohio voters, arriving shortly after the holiday weekend. In the past, only a few counties – including Cuyahoga County – mailed applications. This initiative will cost $1.4 million.  “This mailing represents an unprecedented move toward uniformity, accessibility and fairness in Ohio’s elections process,” Secretary Husted said. “For the first time voters in all 88 counties will receive an application to vote by mail – turning their kitchen table into a voting booth.”
