Columbus artist Jenny Fine says her camera has become a tool for facilitating intimacy between herself and her family, and nowhere is that more evident than in her “Flat Granny” series, soon to be on view at the Dublin Arts Council. The artist photographed her grandmother during the last ten years of her life.
Ohio Senate Approves Voting Changes
Listen to the Story
In a party-line vote yesterday, the Ohio Senate passed a bill Republicans say makes several important changes to state election law.
The measure ends the so-called “Golden Week” when people can register and cast a ballot at the same time, and shortens the in-person early voting period. Senator Shirley Smith was among the Democrats saying the bill goes too far.
“I have no doubt that at the rate we’re going, in the very near future we’ll be asked to show a birth mark before we can cast our ballot,” Smith said.
The measure also lets people change voter registration details online. The Senate bill must now be reconciled with an election bill passed in the House last week.
