Legislation to overhaul Ohio elections
Ohio Republicans passed legislation this week that would make sweeping changes to state election laws, including requirements for voters to show photo ID at the polls.
The Ohio General Assembly worked late overnight on a number of bills before the end of the lame duck session.
These included sweeping legislation aimed at state elections laws, everything from voting times to drop boxes to mail in voting.
Among the many changes, the legislation tightens the timelines for absentee voting and requires voters to show a photo ID at the polls. It passed both chambers.
Today on All Sides with Ann Fisher we are taking a look at legislation to overhaul elections here in Ohio.
