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.
