COLUMBUS - State Rep. Sedrick Denson (D-Cincinnati) today announced the Controlling Board’s approval of several funding requests from the Ohio Secretary of State’s office to provide for election-related activities ahead of the November 2024 general election. 

“Investing in voter access and education is crucial for our elections. Furthermore, approving these funds is a positive step toward ensuring every Ohioan can participate in our democracy,” said Rep. Denson.

The funding will be used by the local county boards of election to purchase additional electronic poll books, pay for the printing & mailing of absentee ballots, and produce several election-related public service announcements (PSAs) encouraging Ohioans to register to vote and reminding them to vote on or before Nov. 5.

In addition to funding for new pollbooks, the Controlling Board also approved funding for election-related PSAs and for the printing & mailing of vote-by-mail ballots. The Secretary of State’s office estimates that as many as 8M vote-by-mail ballot applications will be printed, addressed, and delivered for the Nov. 5 election.
