Republican Secretary of State Jon Husted told a statewide gathering of elections officials that this fall’s vote will be watched by the world and by attorneys for both major political parties.

So Husted said his office has been working to update voter rolls, which he says are more accurate than ever.

“We have complete records on more than 90 percent of voters, up from 20 percent in January 2011. Since January 2011, more than 440,000 deceased Ohioans (have been removed) from the rolls, working to make sure that we keep the voter rolls up to date.”

Husted said he’ll also be recruiting more poll workers and expanding the use of electronic pollbooks, now used in less than half of Ohio’s 88 counties.
