Ohio lawmakers move to change election laws, voter ID requirements

A sweeping overhaul to Ohio election law first introduced last year reemerged Thursday with changes that eliminate attempts to streamline voter registration and limit what can be used for identification at the polls. House Bill 294 would also allow election officials to set up three ballot drop boxes at one location in the county, which advocates worry could limit access for voters in both urban and rural areas. It also lets Ohioans request an absentee ballot online and eliminates in-person early voting the Monday before Election Day, redistributing those hours to other days.
