Republicans introduce extreme anti-voter legislation

2 mins read

Ohio Republicans are committed to setting a new standard for extreme anti-voter legislation.

We knew this was coming, but we didn’t know just how bad the anti-voter legislation Ohio Republicans put forward would be. This legislation takes the voter suppression measures we saw in Georgia and Florida this year to a whole new level.

When it comes to anti-voter legislation, Ohio Republicans have set a new standard. This bill only serves to take Ohio further back in the fight for voting rights in our state.

The most recent attack on our right to vote includes:

  • Eliminating a day of early voting on the Monday before Election Day,
  • Cutting off Ohioans’ ability to request an absentee ballot 10 days out from an election, removing a week that Ohioans were previously able to request an absentee ballot,
  • Requiring two forms of ID for online absentee ballot requests,
  • Prohibiting anyone but the Secretary of State from providing prepaid postage for absentee ballot request returns and providing no funding for the Secretary to be able to do so,
  • Codifying Frank LaRose’s nonsensical limit of one dropbox location per county that can only be used in cases of emergency, but making a confusing exception to the rule 10 days out from an election, and
  • Forcing Ohioans to opt-in to ‘automated’ voter registration through the BMV, meaning voter registration isn’t automated at all.
  • We’re fighting back against their anti-voter tactics every step of the way — and we’ll take it to court if we have to. But fighting back won’t be easy and we need to make sure we have the resources to do so — will you help us fill our Ohio Voting Rights Legal Fund to ensure we can protect the right to vote for every single Ohioan?

The fight for Ohio’s future is on,
