Ohio Secretary of State Jon Husted to Testify Before
Congressional Committee on Maintaining Voter Rolls
COLUMBUS – Ohio Secretary of State Jon Husted will testify during a joint hearing of the U.S. House Subcommittees on National Security and Healthcare, Benefits & Administrative Rules at 2:00 p.m. on Thursday, February 12, 2015, in room 2154 of the Rayburn House Office Building.
Secretary Husted will address the increased potential that non-citizens may illegally register to vote as a result of the President’s Immigration Accountability Executive Actions expanding access to the types of valid forms of identification used to register to vote. Secretary Husted recently sent President Barack Obama a letter raising these concerns and outlining a workable solution.
The Secretary will be available to speak with reporters in attendance immediately following the hearing in room 2154 of the Rayburn House Office Building.
