03.12.18 - Clyde Testifies To US Commission On Civil Rights

 

State Rep. Kathleen Clyde (D-Kent) testified on the state of voting rights in Ohio before the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights’ Ohio Advisory Committee. The committee sought to receive input from officials and the public on how the voting rights landscape has changed over the last 12 years and what challenges remain.

“Ohio is still very much a battleground for voting rights,” said Clyde. “Since 2011, 38 bills harmful to voting rights have been introduced, 13 have been enacted, and we face new challenges to Ohioans’ voting rights in 2018. The work of the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights is important for exploring weaknesses in our democratic systems so we can find real solutions that expand access and remove barriers to voting. I encourage Ohioans to send their voting stories and voting rights concerns to the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights.”
