A radical group has announced a draft of an Ohio election overhaul that will eliminate an early voting date, require more forms of identification for early voting, and only allow emergency voting. statewide.
However, Rep. Bill Seitz, R-Green Township, said that draft will not become the proposed law.
“What you have is not what will be introduced,” said Seitz, one of the lawmakers working on changes to Ohio election law. “The draft is a draft. That is all they are.
What changes will be introduced? Seitz won’t share any details, but Rep. Rose Sweeney, D-Cleveland, said the fact that such a draft exists completely says something about the “misconception” of Her Republican colleagues.
“They had misconceptions that we should have stricter voter ID laws because of voter fraud, and that’s not true,” Sweeney said. “It’s a lie, and that’s part of the voter oppression.”
