Ohio Issues Directive to Set a New Standard for Election Security in 2020

July 14, 2020


Ohio Secretary of State Frank LaRose issued the 2020 Election Security & Accessibility Directive on Tuesday to the state’s 88 county boards of elections. The directive details how counties must utilize federal dollars to strengthen their election security and accessibility for disabled voters in preparation for the upcoming general election.

“Our efforts last year already made Ohio a national leader in election security, but we need to keep our foot on the gas,” said LaRose. “This order empowers our county boards of elections with technological enhancements that will set a new standard for election security.”
