Well, team —
It looks like the Ohio GOP is trying to make voting harder. Again.
Ohio Republicans are hoping no one will notice as they rush to pass a bill that would make it harder to vote in person AND vote by mail during a global pandemic.
They’re taking the chaotic, confusing primary election and using it as a blueprint for this November. If their bill passes, it would eliminate the final three days of early voting, end the past practice of mailing an absentee ballot application to every registered Ohio voter and prohibit the state from using federal funds to pay for prepaid postage for absentee ballots.
The plan also makes it nearly impossible for the governor and health director to ensure the safety of voters if we have another spike in coronavirus infections.
We should not be making it harder and less safe to vote in the middle of a global pandemic, full stop.
