Dear Secretary of State Jon Husted:
In order for our democracy to function, it is imperative that all Americans not only have the right to vote; every American must have the ability to exercise that right to vote.
Restricting early voting in Ohio severely limits people’s ability to access the polls.
In America, our democratic system is not perfect. We do not have a national voting holiday, and we do not have equal access to the voting booth. We should be working to expand democratic participation, not decrease it.
For the sake of our democracy, please reinstate early voting on weekends and on the three days prior to the election to all eligible voters.
