Educational videos on State Issues 1 and 2 released for voters


COLUMBUS – Ohio Secretary of State Jon Husted released a pair of educational videos to inform Ohioans about the statewide ballot issues they will vote on as part of the November 7 election. These educational videos are designed to encourage voter awareness and participation in the upcoming Ohio election.

“An informed and educated electorate is vital to self-government,” Secretary Husted said. “It’s important to remember that there are no ‘off-year’ elections. Ohio voters will have a pair of important statewide issues – and countless local issues – before them in November.”
