Ohio is at the epicenter of electoral policy discussions in the United States. Over the next two years, Ohio will again engage in debates about redistricting reform, early voting, voter registration and provisional ballots.

BPC hosted Secretary of State Jon Husted and a panel of experts for a conversation about prospects for electoral reform in Ohio in 2015 and beyond. The secretary, who was recently re-elected to a four-year term, focused on his vision for making redistricting reform a reality in 2015.
