07.24.17 - Clyde Announces Stop The Purge Act Amid New Report On Ohio's Continued Practice Of Cancelling Voter Registrations

 

State Rep. Kathleen Clyde (D-Kent) today announced the introduction of House Bill (HB) 274, or the Stop the Purge Act. The bill announcement comes on the heels of a recently released report by the U.S. Election Assistance Commission showing polling problems in Ohio. Rep. Clyde’s comments today also follow her recent call for Ohio to quit the Kansas Interstate Crosscheck purge program.

“My colleagues and I are continuing to fight the purge of Ohio voters with the re-introduction of the Stop the Purge Act, HB 274, which would protect eligible voters from cancellation,” said Clyde. “Thankfully, 635,000 Ohio voters have been protected from the purge that was planned for this summer because of the pending purge lawsuit. However, recently released federal data shows Ohio continues to be one of the worst purging states, and is the most aggressive state in the country at targeting voters for future purging. The Stop the Purge Act would put an end to Ohio’s notoriety in voter purging.”

 
 

07.13.17 - Clyde Calls For More Safeguarding Of Ohio Voters' Personal Information

 

Rep. Kathleen Clyde (D-Kent) today called for further action against ongoing efforts by the president’s “Election Integrity Commission” to obtain American voters’ data. She called on Ohio Secretary of State Jon Husted to stop sharing Ohio voters’ personal information through any channel with Kansas Secretary of State and Commission leader Kris Kobach.

“Ohio must stop putting our voters’ personal information at risk,” said Rep Clyde. “Our Secretary of State must stop sharing Ohio voter data, including the last four digits of Social Security numbers (SSN4), with Secretary Kris Kobach’s Interstate Crosscheck program, a pre-cursor to the president’s so-called Election Integrity Commission. And Secretary Husted must assure Ohioans that voter data he has already shared with Kobach will not be used for the president’s sham voter fraud commission.”

06.30.17 - Clyde Statement On Federal Action To Collect Voter Names And ID Numbers

 

State Rep. Kathleen Clyde (D-Kent) issued the following statement in response to action taken yesterday by Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach, the leader of the president’s new commission on voting, to obtain the political affiliation and personal identification numbers of voters from all 50 states.

“It is well documented that President Trump's claim that millions of people voted illegally last fall is patently false. Yet, while ignoring the confirmed interference in our election by the Russian government, the president appointed a so-called Election Integrity Commission to try to legitimize his false claim about illegal voting. He’s put known vote suppressors in charge of it like Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach and former Ohio Secretary of State Ken Blackwell.
