COLUMBUS - State Rep. Richard Brown (D-Canal Winchester) today announced the Controlling Board’s approval of several funding requests from the Ohio Secretary of State’s office to provide for election-related activities ahead of the November 2024 general election. 

“The integrity of our elections is of the upmost importance. Due to recent attempts by Republicans to subvert the will of the people, it is more important than ever to ensure that our Boards of Election are funded and that voters are informed,” said Rep. Brown. “However, if the state legislature does not take swift action, the President of the United States will not appear on Ohio’s November ballot and that must be solved immediately.”

The funding will be used by the local county boards of election to purchase additional electronic poll books, pay for the printing & mailing of absentee ballots, and produce several election-related public service announcements (PSAs) encouraging Ohioans to register to vote and reminding them to vote on or before Nov. 5.

In addition to funding for new pollbooks, the Controlling Board also approved funding for election-related PSAs and for the printing & mailing of vote-by-mail ballots. The Secretary of State’s office estimates that as many as 8M vote-by-mail ballots will be printed, addressed and delivered for the Nov. 5 election.
