Williams Leaders Back On-Line Registration

At their Mon­day meet­ing, the Williams County Com­mis­sion­ers threw their sup­port behind an effort to bring online voter reg­is­tra­tion to the state of Ohio. The Bryan Times reports that Tim Monoco, a rep­re­sen­ta­tive with the Ohio Sec­re­tary of State’s office, requested that the com­mis­sion­ers send a let­ter of sup­port for Sen­ate Bill 63… pend­ing leg­is­la­tion to autho­rize statewide online voter reg­is­tra­tion. Sen­a­tor Cliff Hite of Williams County, is one of the cospon­sors of SB 63, which requires the Sec­re­tary of State to estab­lish a secure statewide online voter reg­is­tra­tion sys­tem through an appli­ca­tion that would be valid only if a voter pro­vides the last four dig­its of his or her social secu­rity num­ber and either an Ohio driver’s license num­ber or Ohio iden­ti­fi­ca­tion card num­ber as proof of iden­tity.

The leg­is­la­tion also requires that vot­ers must be United States cit­i­zens, 2.) Will have lived in Ohio at least 30 days before the next elec­tion, 3.) Will be at least 18 years old before the next election.
