Action Alert: Protect Voter Integrity in Ohio / Call the Ohio Senate

Action Alert

The bill requiring Photo ID for voting in Ohio (HB 159) is expected to come up for a vote in the Ohio Senate this Tuesday 9/27/11. 

Already passed in the OH House and delayed in the OH Senate since June, HB 159 will require voters casting provisional or voting in person to furnish a photo ID for identification purposes...
To amend sections 3501.01, 3503.14, 3503.15, 3503.16, 3503.19, 3503.24, 3503.28, 3505.18, 3505.181, 3505.182, 3505.183, 3509.03, 3509.031, 3509.04, 3509.05, 3509.08, 3511.02, 3511.05, 3511.09, and 4507.50 of the Revised Code to generally require electors who appear at a polling place to vote or who cast absent voter's ballots in person to provide photo identification, to establish a process for electors to receive free photo identification, to establish a process to permit electors with a religious objection to being photographed to vote, and to revise the information that must accompany a provisional ballot for that ballot to be eligible to be counted.
With more than can be counted examples of illegal immigrants voting illegally, and with OH being a known battleground state for the Presidency, it is important we protect the integrity of the voting process in Ohio. 

The OH Senate passing HB 159 will minimize the chance of illegal immigrants and non-residents from voting in Ohio.

The OH Senate, though having a GOP majority, is not the bastion of conservatism as you may think. The vote on requiring Photo ID for voting has been put off by the Ohio Senate since June.  WHY?

Because of this, we must let them know keeping the highest standards in voter integrity is of the utmost importance. It is important pressure be put on the GOP members in the OH Senate to pass HB 159. 

The question is very simple... if you cannot provide an ID proving who you are and that you are a resident of OH -- why should you be allowed to illegally vote in elections affecting Ohio?
