illegal voting

A Franklin County Common Pleas Court judge has ruled Ohioans can apply for absentee mail-in ballots online. 

At public events and on Twitter, President Trump has urged supporters to vote by mail and in person to "test" the system.  Gov. Mike DeWine confirms that would be illegal in Ohio.

In North Carolina Wednesday, President Trump told voters to cast a ballot by mail then go to vote in person later. He says if they are declined the right to vote, they’ll know their mail-in ballot counted. But it is illegal for voters in Ohio to do that.

Ohio’s Secretary of State says 354 people who are not U.S. citizens registered to vote or actually cast ballots in 2018. And those people could potentially face charges.

Secretary of State Frank LaRose says the discovery came after his office did the annual crosschecks of databases from the 2018 election.

Though President Donald Trump claims up to 5 million people voted illegally in last year’s election, Ohio’s top voting official says the numbers here are a small fraction of that. Statehouse correspondent Andy Chow reports on the results of Secretary of State Jon Husted's  investigation into how many non-citizens cast a ballot.

Republican Secretary of State Jon Husted says that 385 people who aren’t U.S. citizens were on Ohio’s voting rolls last year, and 82 of those people actually cast ballots. Ohio has a total of 7.8 million registered voters.
