Columbus, Ohio: League of Women Voters of Ohio's Executive Director, Jen Miller's statement on the passage of SB 52 by the Ohio House.
"The passage of SB 52 is incredibly timely, and we encourage the Governor to sign this bill immediately. As we prepare for a major election in 2020, voters can be assured that Ohio's election will be even more secure. By placing Secretary LaRose on the Homeland Security Council and through the formation of a cyber security reserve, Ohio elections will be further safeguarded from bad actors. Requiring post-election audits also helps assure voters that Ohio's election results are fair and accurate.
However, our work is not done. We look forward to continuing to work with Secretary LaRose and the Ohio General Assembly on other critical election modernization efforts including automatic voter verification and registration (SB 186) and vetting voter registration software providers (SB 194)."
