Ohio: Ohio Secretary of State Jon Husted has Gov. John Kasich and members of the Legislature to put $118 million in the upcoming capital budget to purchase new voting equipment by 2020. “Given the state law requirements for voting systems in Ohio, I believe that the state should pay 100 percent of the capital acquisition and setup costs of the lowest cost, safe and accurate system from the least expensive vendor,” Husted wrote according to The Columbus Dispatch. Most of the state’s voting equipment is more than a decade old.
