In the latest story of America’s political divide, more than 100 U.S. companies this week declared their opposition to voting reforms being considered by several state legislatures. Reuters reports that Republicans in these states say the changes are needed to restore or ensure election integrity; activist groups say the proposals could disenfranchise those who tend not to vote Republican.

Secretary of State Frank LaRose has noted that Ohio has some of the most voter-friendly, accessible early voting opportunities in the nation. He also points out that in Ohio, the county boards of elections require both Democratic and Republican board members to make decisions. 4/15/2021
