05.24.16 - Clyde Releases Statement On Same Day Voter Registration Court Decision

 

State Rep. Kathleen Clyde (D-Kent) released the following statement in support of today’s federal district court decision that Ohio legislation eliminating a week of same day registration violated both the 14th amendment and the Voting Rights Act:

"On the same day the legislature voted to shut down online voter registration updates and postpone new online registrations until 2017, a federal court reinstated Ohio's same day registration week. I am happy the court agreed with Democratic officials that SB 238's removal of the same day registration violates the Voting Rights Act and the U.S. Constitution. I hope we can put a stop to further voting restrictions between now and November."

 
 

05.23.16 - Clyde Calls On House Speaker To Reject Senate Bills That Restrict Voting

 

State Rep. Kathleen Clyde (D-Kent) sent the below letter to Ohio House Speaker Cliff Rosenberger calling for a stop to Senate Bill 63 and Senate Bill 296, two bills that would put more restrictions on Ohioans’ right to vote.

“The House is poised to pass one bill that would shut down Ohio’s online voter registration update system and a second bill that would close the state’s courthouse doors to voters who can’t afford a hefty price. We need to change course.” said Clyde. “When the legislature restricts our right to vote, they undercut our most basic freedom.”
