COLUMBUS– State Representative Kathleen Clyde (D-Kent) released the following statement in response to the today’s settlement of the early voting lawsuit:


“I applaud the work of these voting rights advocates, the ACLU, the NAACP, and the League of Women Voters, for achieving early voting access that makes sense for working people. Early voting access during evenings, weekends, and the final three days before the election works for Ohioans and I am happy this access is restored.


The loss of Same Day Voter Registration is a huge step backwards for the state of Ohio. To make up for this setback, I am working on a bill to create automatic voter registration for all Ohioans. If the GOP refuses to let people register and vote on the same day, then they should support government creating and maintaining a complete list of eligible voters. That would truly make voting easier for both voters and election officials.”
