Re: Ohio Voters Support Automatic Voter Registration

Ohio voters, by a large 2-1 margin[1], support making voter registration automatic, so that every legal citizen 18 years or older is automatically registered to vote when they receive or renew their driver’s license. These reforms will simplify and modernize the process of voter registration, making it easier for more voters to have their voices heard.

Voters throughout Ohio Support Automatic Voter Registration
