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."
