Rep. Sweeney Statement On Voter Registration Study Group
Group to study potential for automated registration in Ohio
Posted April 24, 2019 by Minority Caucus
 
 

State Rep. Bride Rose Sweeney (D-Cleveland) today issued a statement following a press conference announcing the creation of a bipartisan working group to study the potential for automated voter registration in Ohio.


“I’ve been interested in voting issues and modernizing Ohio’s current, outdated system since I joined the legislature, and I am encouraged that we’re finally coming together in a bipartisan manner to discuss commonsense ways for us to improve and simplify our voting system. If implemented, automated registration could add more than 1 million eligible voters to the rolls, save taxpayer money and encourage more Ohioans to exercise their most fundamental freedom.


“I look forward to having this discussion and working with the Secretary of State, voter advocates and local elections officials to ensure we get this right for everyday Ohioans.”
