SB 194, which is subject to a repeal effort in the 2012 General Election, reduces the amount of voting days registered voters can cast a ballot prior to election day, puts the responsibility of voting in the proper location on said registered voter and would require registered voters to submit a Vote by Mail application if they wish to vote absentee.

United States Sen. Sherrod Brown (D-OH) and Senate Majority Whip Dick Durbin (D-IL) will hold an official hearing of the Senate Judiciary Subcommittee on the Constitution, Civil Rights, and Human Rights in Cleveland on Monday examining the impact of Ohio’s new voting law, H.B. 194, which shortens early voting and eliminates the requirement that poll workers direct voters to the proper precinct. U.S. Rep. Marcia Fudge (D-Warrensville) will provide testimony; additional witnesses will be announced at a later date.
Ohio’s new law reduces the number of early voting days from 35 to 17, and eliminates voting on the weekend before an election and prohibits county boards of elections from mailing unsolicited absentee ballots.
H.B. 194 will be subject to a ballot repeal measure in November.
The hearing will begin at 9 a.m. at the Carl B. Stokes federal courthouse, 801 W. Superior Avenue, all are encouraged to attend.
Where HB 194 and other election law related bills passed on Ohio this year will instill some integrity back into the election process and close loopholes that encourage voter fraud, the Democrats, no longer allowed to use votes from the cemetery as voters are now required to, if not registered, to at least have a pulse, would rather have voting available to anybody with a pulse, being allowed to vote anywhere -- days, weeks, and possibly months before election day.
With Ohio being a known battleground state, with the Democrats having to perform well in Cuyahoga County to win in Ohio and with Sherrod Brown & President Obama unable to run on their past 4 yrs of failure, that this Democrat-led Dog & Pony Show of "Voter Victimhood & Veiled Class Warfare" should come as no surprise.
The hearing starts at 9 a.m. Monday 5/7/12 at the Carl B. Stokes Federal Courthouse, located at 801 W. Superior Avenue Cleveland, OH (Click here for Map).
