Voters’ Rights Groups Continue Threatening Lawsuits
Voting rights activists are once again threatening to sue if state lawmakers repeal an election law on this fallâ€™s ballot.
The American Civil Liberties Union and other groups began gathering signatures last year to put a repeal of House Bill 194 on the fall ballot.
Common Cause Ohioâ€™s Sam Gresham says lawmakers repealing the law ahead of the fall election would only confuse voters.
“Anything that they do right now is going to be thrown into a time period when the election starts. If they pass it in May, (it starts) 90 days after that. It’ll cause too much confusion in the election process,” Gresham says.
Gresham says it takes an average of two years for poll workers and voters to completely adapt to changes in voting laws, and he says any alterations in such a big election year would be confusing and unfair.
A repeal of the law thatâ€™s on this fallâ€™s ballot has passed the Senate, but no hearings have been scheduled in the House.
