CINCINNATI - The Hamilton County Board of Elections meets Thursday morning to discuss extending in-person voting options for November's election.
Ohio's Secretary of State Jon Husted is calling for uniformed in-person hours throughout the state. Husted says registered voters will receive an application to vote by mail giving them 750 hours to vote without leaving home. In addition to that, Husted says all voters will have 23 days to cast their ballot in person prior to the election.
Two local advocacy groups are rallying Thursday morning at the Hamilton County Board of Elections meeting urging officials to approve extended in person voting hours to facilitate access for the working class. The two groups rallying include the UFCW Local 75 -- a group dedicated to the economic and social well being of its members along the I-75 corridor -- and Amos Project -- a group dedicated to promoting justice and improving the quality of life for all residents.
