Secretary LaRose Issues Statement on Today’s Ohio House Session

Our brave men and women serving overseas deserve better than to be used as pawns in a political standoff. I understand the disagreements over redistricting, but we should have the honor and decency to set those differences aside to give our military voters all the support they need in casting a ballot. Some legislators chose to put politics over patriots today, and they should be ashamed.

I’m convinced more than ever that this effort to delay the May 3 primary election is part of a larger strategy to create chaos and confusion while deep-pocketed out of state interests bankroll an endless parade of partisan litigation. My job is to overcome that noise and provide Ohioans with a secure, accurate and accessible election they can trust. That’s why I went to the General Assembly with this request, and I’m grateful for a unanimous vote in the Ohio Senate and a majority vote in the Ohio House that ensures our military voters will not be disenfranchised by political games.
