Democratic backers of the November ballot issue to repeal a newly passed election reform law say the state needs to leave the issue alone right now and allow it to go to the ballot as planned. Former Secretary of State Jennifer Brunner says repealing the law and replacing it now with a new one would likely disenfranchise some voters.
Brunner says she’d like to see in person voting the weekend before the election restored for November and be in place like it was back in 2008. Ohio Secretary of State Jon Husted says he wants the legislature to repeal the election reform law now. And he says if anything is put in place to replace it now, that legislation should be bipartisan.
