The Ohio Christian Alliance’s Chris Long is urging House members to reject the Senate-passed bill that would allow residents to register to vote online.

“We think it should be slow walked and that the platform on the internet should be tested, vetted before it’s implemented.”

Long says there should be more safeguards in place, so the change should wait after the November election.

“The system for online voter registration is already built because we allow online address updates.”

Clyde says online registration is easier, would save money and is a better system overall.
