State Rep. Kathleen Clyde (D-Kent) issued the following statement in response to Governor Kasich’s veto of Senate Bill 296:


“I am so pleased that the governor heeded the warning of the voting rights community and Democratic lawmakers and vetoed Senate Bill 296. Governor Kasich made the right call and I am thankful for his action. Today’s veto stops a harmful bill that would have acted as a poll tax on the most vulnerable Ohioans. Emergencies happen and our officials need the ability to respond to ensure access to the polls. Thank you, Governor Kasich.”
