Ohio Officials Say Voting By Mail Is Safe, Debunking Trump’s Claims
Even as Donald Trump continues to push debunked conspiracy theories about voter fraud, Gov. Mike DeWine is assuring Ohioans that the state’s primary election — which will be concluded primarily by vote-by-mail — is safe. In fact, Trump has utilized absentee voting himself to vote in Florida.
DeWine also is saying that he has no concerns about “any kind of fraud” with the state’s vote-by-mail primary election.
Despite assurances from Ohio Republicans that voting by mail is safe and secure, Donald Trump continues to attack it. Why is Trump so afraid of making it safer and more convenient to vote? He admitted that if we did so, “you’d never have a Republican elected in this country again.”

OHIO DEMS IN THE HEADLINES
Beatty’s Votes Help Bring Back $62M To Address Coronavirus Crisis
The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development and the Federal Transit Administration recently announced that several local community health centers, Central Ohio Transit Authority, the city of Columbus and Franklin County have received a total of more than $62 million in federal funds to improve response efforts to the coronavirus.
Funding was made available through the Emergency Coronavirus Preparedness and Response Supplemental Appropriations Act and the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act, two pieces of legislation supported by Congresswoman Joyce Beatty.
“As the representative of Ohio’s Third Congressional District, I am fighting hard to secure the much-needed federal resources to ensure that hard-working Ohioans, families and small businesses come first during this public health crisis,” Beatty said. “I was proud to support all three comprehensive COVID-19 response bills, but I am even prouder of the many people in central Ohio who are working tirelessly on the front lines in the ongoing battle against the virus. The $62 million in federal funds will help my constituents as well as the courageous professionals and dedicated individuals who are saving lives and keeping our country and economy moving forward.”
Congresswoman Joyce Beatty, Congresswoman Marcia Fudge, Ohio House Democratic Leader Emilia Sykes and other elected officials are hosting a telephone town hall on Monday, April 13, to discuss the coronavirus crisis. Click here to RSVP.
