Ohio Democrats believe that our democracy is stronger when more people participate in the process, so today we filed a lawsuit to permit county boards of elections to install multiple, secure dropboxes where voters can deliver their absentee ballots.
Many states — including Republican-led states, like Georgia and Utah, and Democratic-run states, like Oregon and Colorado — use voter dropboxes widely, with no controversy or partisanship. They cut out delays, don’t require a stamp and reduce lines.
During unprecedented attacks by the president on the postal service, dropboxes are more important than ever — so we were more than disappointed by the recent ban on all but a single drop box per county in Ohio.
We’re proud to file this lawsuit today — not because of politics, but because it’s the right thing to do. People must be able to vote safely and securely in this critical election.
