Ohio Secretary of State

 Frank LaRose will be sworn-in Saturday as Ohio's next Secretary of State.  The job has a number of responsibilities, but the one getting the most attention in recent years has been the secretary’s role in Ohio elections. 

In a conversation with WKSU’s Kabir Bhatia, LaRose talked about his new position.  One of the things he’s going to be focused on is the conversation surrounding voter fraud and voter suppression.

On a drizzly Saturday, I meet Frank LaRose at the Marion Popcorn Festival.

“So what do you guys suggest?” LaRose asks at one booth, ducking under the tent to get out of the rain. “I’m definitely going to get some kettle corn,”

It’s not often that people feel sincerely sorry for politicians, but in Ohio, you might be able to work up a bit of sympathy for the down-ticket candidates for state offices this year.

Last week, Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine rejected  the language in a proposal that would change how congressional districts are drawn in the state.

Alright, it’s settled now.

The two voter information posters from Ohio Secretary of State Jon Husted – a candidate for re-election – which display his name prominently featured will be posted in Ohio’s polling places.
