Despite Husted’s Efforts, Absentee Ballot Application Mailings Occur

COLUMBUS — Late yesterday, Republican Secretary of State Jon Husted announced the mailing of absentee ballot applications to all registered Ohio voters. The first such statewide mailing took place in 2012 in response to a deal struck with local leaders in Cuyahoga County in 2011 following Husted’s directive barring local boards of elections from proactively mailing these applications.

In response to Husted’s announcement, Ohio Democratic Party Chairman Chris Redfern released the following statement:

“The mailing of absentee ballot applications to registered Ohio voters is a good thing, and a practice popular in many counties before Jon Husted prevented them from doing so in 2011. Thankfully, he bowed to the concerns of local officials for the good of Ohio voters.  If Secretary Husted really wanted to make it easier to vote and reduce lines on Election Day, he would not have advocated for the elimination of the first week of early voting, and would have provided working Ohioans with evening early vote hours they can actually use.”

She was then appointed to the vacant 25th Ohio Senate seat, and two years later was elected to a full term after winning the respect of the hard-working women and men of Northeast Ohio.  Nina is running for Secretary of State to expand ballot access and ensure that all Ohioans have opportunities to succeed.
