Republican-backed Overhaul Of Ohio Voting Laws Nearing Release
The state representative sponsoring a significant rewrite of Ohio’s election laws says it will be released soon.
State Rep. Bill Seitz said says the bill could reduce early voting days and prohibit ballot drop boxes, but also could add conveniences like online mail-in ballot requests. Seitz has been working on the bill for months.
The Cincinnati Republican said it's not a suppressive overhaul of voting protocols, as has caught attention in Georgia, but a careful effort to incorporate changes sought by both Democrats and Republicans.
Democrats assert Seitz is trying to “walk back” plans to suppress voters' rights after a draft of the bill surfaced.
