Fix HB 680 to make voting improvements
We are calling for simple and safe voting this November and HB 680 takes us in the wrong direction.
Just yesterday, the Ohio Controlling Board denied Secretary of State Frank LaRose's very reasonable request to prepay postage on absentee ballots. To make matters worse, the Ohio Senate immediately scheduled a hearing to ban pre-paid postage on absentee applications and ballots for all future elections. The Senate committee hearing HB 680 could vote it out tomorrow.
As public health concerns persist, the Ohio General Assembly should make improvements to absentee and early voting, so no Ohioan has to choose between protecting their health and casting their ballot.
Contact your state Senator and tell them to Fix HB 680 with the following voting improvements or vote No:
- Prepaid postage on absentee applications and ballots,
- Online absentee ballot requests, and
- Multiple, secure and convenient dropboxes to return absentee ballots
On behalf of the Ohio Voter Rights Coalition Steering Committee, thank you for taking action!
