State Rep. Kathleen Clyde (D-Kent) issued the following statement on the heels of the Northeast Ohio Coalition for the Homeless’ (NEOCH) petition to seek redress in the U.S. Supreme Court:

“I applaud NEOCH and statewide voting rights advocates in their efforts to secure common sense ballot counting procedures at the U.S. Supreme Court. The Sixth and Eleventh Circuits are in conflict on this issue, and a decision must be made to strengthen this pillar of our democracy. Throwing out absentee and provisional ballots of eligible Ohio voters based on trivial, technical errors is disenfranchisement. It disproportionately impacts minority communities and the young and elderly. The Court is our last hope to reign in the excesses of anti-voting GOP lawmakers.”
