Legislature struck a last minute provision into the transportation bill (House Bill 53) that creates an obstacle to
college students voting. Right now
it’s simple—if a citizen has lived in Ohio for 30 days, they are
qualified to vote. House Bill 53 would require
those who register to vote in Ohio to register
their vehicles with the Ohio Bureau of Motor Vehicles within 30 days. The financial hurdle of a new license and
motor vehicle registration could discourage eligible voters.
Kasich know that you appreciate his use of the line-item veto!
He stood up for voters. Let him know that his veto creates better
access to the polls and lets us know that he cares about democracy.
If you take action and have not already registered, you will receive periodic updates and communications from Common Cause.
Thank you for vetoing obstacles to voting
