We have an awesome team, who are committed to protecting the right to vote despite the ceaseless attacks.

And you’re welcome
Thank you for your comittment and hard work!
 
Right now, @OHDems and our VOPro team are:
1) scrutinizing every Kanye West signature
2) fighting for drop boxes
3) in court fighting for online applications (we believe OH statute requires they be accepted)
4) fighting poll consolidation
5) recruiting poll workers/observers...
Replying to @DavidPepper
...to fight against GOP plans to challenge voters. 6) pushing hard to re-register purged voters 7) preparing to launch a big vote by mail push When people say they only support candidates and not parties, please remember who does so much of this work. Help state parties.

Ohioans it’s up to us! We can’t let @FrankLaRose decide the law for us! Tell him we want multiple secure drop boxes and prepaid postage. Call 614-466-2655! Tweet him-tell him he works for we the people! Let the people vote!
 
Yes. LaRose is now outflanking Kemp on the right.
In a single county in Georgia, they have as many drop boxes as LaRose will allow in 20 Ohio counties.

Anchorage and King County, WA also have tons.

They even provide maps to make it easy.

But under LaRose? Ohio, you can only have per county. pic.twitter.com/lynJGiT8zO

WATCH: if you’re just getting to the Ohio voter drop box issue today or tonight, here’s a primer from a few weeks ago.

Adding these boxes is safe, secure, bipartisan and allowed by Ohio statute.

LaRose shutting down the broad call to take this common sense step is a disgrace

WATCH: One common sense solution to voting in a pandemic is to expand vote drop boxes, where people can drop off ballots directly (not in mail), throughout counties

They're safe. They're easy. Fewer delays. No stamps

Other states use them broadly. We should too

Psssst @FrankLaRose....probably not a great idea to suppress votes in such STUPIDLY obvious fashion with all the, you know, "issues" your party's legislators have been working out. @GovMikeDeWine thoughts? Or just prayers?
 
Maddow. Nailed. It.

Thank you @maddow and @MaddowBlog for seeing through the LaRose nonsense.
Hey @FrankLaRose, Rachel Maddow is giving you grief right now over you drop box ruling for ballots. And you deserve it. @maddow
 
In reply to @DavidPepper
The craziest thing here is that the statute says nothing about extending these provisions for the general election. He’s already using discretion to do that, and theoretically open to lawsuits.
The primary law was only about requiring each county to have a drop box. The authority to do so already existed.
 
.@jennycohn1 called it!
Ohio Secretary of State @FrankLaRose (R) seems poised to STOP the installation of more drop boxes in Ohio, forcing more voters to return their ballots using the USPS, despite the efforts of Trump’s new postmaster to delay the mail. @DavidPepper (D) supports more drop boxes. ⬇️ 1/
 
In case you’re a reporter getting spun like this guy by the LaRose comms shop, please read the Ohio statute or check w lawyers in Ohio (I’m one too).

Nothing in Ohio statute led to his limitation today. Nothing.
In reply to @mjs_DC
Again, please read the statute before repeating any more of LaRose’s nonsense. “Personally” is not being used in that way, and that reading makes no sense. It is being used as opposed to having certain enumerated relatives who can also “deliver” a ballot for a voter
 
 
In reply to @DavidPepper
The word “personally” does not appear in reference to how those relatives are to “deliver” their ballot. So under LaRose’s bizarre interpretation, Ohio law requires the voter him or herself to bring the ballot to the board itself, but that voter’s relatives wouldn’t need to.
Replying to @DavidPepper @mjs_DC
In short, the word “personally” in no way implies or requires the ballot be cast at the board of electrons. It is being used for a completely different purpose. Please read the statute instead of spreading more misinformation about Ohio law.

In reply to @mjs_DC
Because Ohio didn't expressly approve drop boxes for the general election, LaRose is relying on a law that allows voters to "personally deliver" their ballots "to the director [of elections]." He interprets "personally deliver" to include "drop off at a box outside his office."

🚨🚨🚨

How do you know LaRose never got a legal opinion on this?

When his Comms team resorts to citing an out-of-state reporter who misread Ohio law instead of any legal opinion actually generated by any lawyer within the state of Ohio....
In reply to @clpauwels
Secretary LaRose wants boards to be able to use more drop boxes. But that requires legislative action. This tweet string is a good explainer: twitter.com/mjs_dc/status/…
 
Can’t believe this tweet is still up.

A reporter from outside Ohio swoops in, misreads and mistates Ohio law, and gives a Secretary of State credit for an action that dramatically made voting less safe and easy.

Then admits he misread the law but still keeps the tweet up
This tweet has gotten a lot of attention, but it's incorrect.

The Ohio legislature only authorized drop boxes through the primary—not for the general election. Sec of State LaRose is stretching his authority as far as he can to preserve drop boxes through November. (1)

In reply to @AlaricCDZ
My county in CA has half a million fewer people than Franklin County, OH, but we have thirteen drop boxes. Franklin County will have one. @ACLU
 
Important datapoint.

LaRose’s action today especially hurts large, populated counties.
In reply to @DavidPepper
Particularly troublesome, @DavidPepper, is that guidelines from the @EACgov suggest 1 dropbox per 15-20k registered voters is sufficient. That leaves dozens of Ohio's most populous counties infuriatingly underserved - by orders of magnitude. Let us know how we can help.

Ohio Secretary of State @FrankLaRose threatens the legitimacy of the November election. He refuses to use his discretion to provide for a safe election during the pandemic. He refuses to add ballot drop boxes & to allow online absentee requests. Voter suppression & incompetence!
 
We will document every in-person and automobile line that results from LaRose’s disgraceful decision today.
In reply to @FrankLaRose
@FrankLaRose this is on you.
And it's nothing to be proud of.
So easy, yet your partisanship gets in the way of doing the right thing.

There will be (uncomfortable in a covid environment) lines in all counties for BoE drop boxes!
 
David Pepper Retweeted ·  
.@DavidPepper is correct. What @FrankLaRose did was the end of a concerted campaign to actively prevent counties to make it easier and secure for voters to timely return their absentee ballots despite a partisan attempt to tamper with the @USPS to frustrate that exercise.
 
A single sentence that will be part of LaRose’s legacy amid the 2020 pandemic, when both lives and voting were on the line and others were working toward solutions: “Boards of elections are prohibited from installing a drop box at any other location but the board of elections.”
Here it is: Ohio Sec of State just spelled out a restriction to the location of drop boxes that appears nowhere in Ohio statute: “Boards of elections are prohibited from installing a drop box at any other location but the board of elections.”

An absolute disgrace. pic.twitter.com/HXJsQdPtlV
 
Today he revealed himself.

The legislature didn’t need to act on this one. He received no opinion saying they did. Yet still he banned more than one voter drop box per county.

Can’t blame anyone for this one but himself.
.@FrankLaRose is the king of "I'd love to make voting safer and more accessible, but I just can't, sorry!" bullshit. A hack partisan, through and through.

A moment to behold.

Q: What do you mean by an "invasion" in the suburbs if VP Joe Biden is elected?

President Trump: "They're going to destroy suburbia. And 30 percent of the people in suburbia are minorities. They say 35 percent, but I like to cut it lower."

"There is nothing in the #Ohio Revised Code requiring only 1 ballot drop box per county.
@FrankLaRose has taken it upon himself to ban additional drop boxes, actively making it harder for Ohioans to return their ballots during a pandemic." -@NickieAntonio

After stonewalling for weeks by requesting and then awaiting an unnecessary legal opinion from @Yost4Ohio, @FrankLaRose apparently didn’t need the opinion after all, as he today banned boards of elections from providing multiple secure ballot dropboxes

A reporter said to me today that LaRose said it was about the law.

But he made the decision without even getting the legal opinion he asked for.

And his own letter to the AG was riddled w legal fallacies.

This had nothing to do w the law.

This was about the outcome.
In reply to @AndrewJTobias
LaRose announces he will not direct counties to offer additional ballot drop boxes, something he'd asked Ohio AG Dave Yost for an opinion on. He's called it a "grey area" in state law, but now says it's too late to make a change, and he doesn't want to risk litigation."

Holy shit it was a good idea to put a badass prosecutor on the ticket.

Here is our letter to the AG explaining why Ohio statute so clearly allows multiple voter drop boxes in Ohio.

It’s LaRose who’s choosing to limit them today.

Trump is telling everyone he will stop putting money in the social security trust fund if he wins. So, tell your parents and grandparents. Thank you.

They seriously had months to prepare a comms strategy against the inevitable pick and ... this is what they've got?
 
Exactly right.

Nothing like making voting less safe amid a pandemic.

LaRose revealed himself today.
In reply to @DavidPepper
Sooo, people can stand in line - sometimes for hours - and vote INSIDE schools, community centers and church basements, but they can't DROP OFF their ballots in boxes OUTSIDE those same places?

House Oversight Chairwoman Carolyn Maloney has introduced the Delivering for America Act, which would prohibit the Postal Service from implementing any changes to the operations or level of service it had in place on January 1, 2020, until the COVID-19 pandemic has ended.
 
David Pepper Retweeted ·  
This makes no sense, other than it’s CRYSTAL-CLEAR evidence of voter suppression by #Ohio’s Republican Secretary of State @FrankLaRose.

By refusing to allow more than ONE dropbox per COUNTY, he’s making it much harder for voters to drop off completed ballots in person.

@GovMikeDeWine just like you issued mask order, don’t you think this should be considered a health emergency as well?
 
Never. Stop.

That’s total bullshit! Someone should challenge this ruling in court. With the complete destruction of the @USPS by tRump and his sycophant DeJoy there’s no way voting by mail will work. We need to have multiple drop boxes around the cities to deposit ballots. #VoteBlue2020
