As public health concerns persist, the Ohio General Assembly must make improvements to absentee and early voting, so that no Ohioan is forced to choose between protecting their health and casting their ballot.
Senate Bill 191 is commonsense legislation to make our Absentee Voting system more efficient for voters and election officials, by allowing voters to request an absentee ballot online.
As we saw in the Primary, voting by mail in Ohio is inefficient, confusing, and cumbersome for voters and election officials alike. Countless Ohioans were cut out of the process through no fault of their own. SB 191 would allow voters to securely request their ballot online, but we also need other improvements: prepaid postage for ballots and applications, multiple drop boxes and Early Vote Centers per county, and more.
