Ohio Election Bill Clears Senate
An Ohio bill making major changes to the state's election system was approved by the state senate today. The AP has this report. The bill passed on a party-line vote, with all the Democrats and one Republican voting against it. The most significant change made by the bill is to impose an ID requirement, which I've discussed in EL@M's Weekly Comment. One significant change made to the bill today, after my comment was written, is that driver's licenses will be allowed as ID even if the voter has moved away from the address listed on the license. More background on the bill is available in this AP report.
