New Voting Rules New laws would shorten time available for absentee voting and allow electronic registration. Lawmakers also consider tighter identification restrictions.

Additional Information

Big changes are coming to the way we vote in Ohio, including a tighter limit on when ballots can be cast early, either by mail or in person. Mass mailings of ballots would be outlawed, as would prepaid return postage. The state’s voter database could become more complete in an attempt to detect fraud and online voter registration is a possibility, too. It’s become another partisan battle in Columbus. How would YOU vote on the new voting rules? Thursday at 9:00 on The Sound of Ideas.
