Ohio's State Senator Turner introduces Voter Protection Act

Today, drawing a sharp contrast between the presidential elections held in 2008 and 2012, Ohio State Senator Nina Turner (D-Cleveland) unveiled the Voter Protection Act, new legislation aimed at reforming the way elections are conducted in Ohio. It represents the first piece of legislation to be rolled out by either party in the 130th General Assembly.

Turner described the bill as “not about Democrats or Republicans, but about doing what is best for all of Ohio’s voters,” and said it aimed to avoid the types of uncertainties that faced Ohio’s voters in 2012 and to promote the right to vote by all eligible Ohioans.
The Voter Protection Act includes six primary areas of reform, namely:

■promoting voter registration
■protecting early voting hours
■preventing long lines on election day
■advancing the sophistication of the absentee voting process
■clarifying provisional voting, and
■modernizing Ohio’s election laws.


Just a thought....Ted Strickland for Secretary of Labor.....

Ted Strickland declined to run for Governor of Ohio in 2014...which leads me to speculate he may indeed be on the Presidents list. Ted is a friend to Labor....and a close friend to President Obama.

Anyone else have thoughts on this option?
