PROTECTING DEMOCRACY

For years, state leaders have been trying to make it harder to vote. Ohio was once a leader in voting rights, but now we only make news when politicians engage in voter suppression. We need a Secretary of State who will prioritize fairness, accessibility, and efficiency at the ballot box. We need a Secretary of State who will champion a Democracy for Ohio Agenda.

Democracy for Ohio Agenda:



VOTING RIGHTS

  • Protect Every Citizen’s Right to Vote
  • Stop Voter Purges
  • Increase voter participation by expanding automatic voter registration
  • Expand early voting days and hours
  • Introduce Same-Day Voter Registration
  • Allow for Online Voter Registration
  • Allow for Online Absentee Ballot Requests
  • Create Opt-In for Voters to automatically receive mail ballots


ELECTION INTEGRITY

  • Bolster our state’s cybersecurity and guard against foreign interference in our elections
  • Modernize statewide voter registration database
  • Remove loopholes that allow for dark money to go unreported


SUPPORTING SMALL BUSINESS

The Secretary of State’s office handles incorporation and filings for all businesses in Ohio. I pledge to cut red tape and other obstacles to make it easier to start a business in our state. My office will strive to be the most transparent and user-friendly business portals of any state in the country. 

  • Work with the Department of Commerce, Ohio Treasurer’s Office, and local authorities to make sure businesses have a one-stop-shop for all they need to operate in Ohio.
  • Create the Ohio Business Snapshot, a short and voluntary survey for all new and continuing businesses. The data will be a resource not just for businesses, but for individuals, journalists, academics, and economic development authorities.
  • Develop best practices for cybersecurity and protection of sensitive business data
  • Create office of Entrepreneurship 
  • Develop resources for Veteran, Minority, and Women Owned Businesses
