The Ohio House of Representatives Committee that handles election law bills will begin hearing testimony on HB 260 during the week of October 13-16. HB 260 is a very long bill that revises dozens of Ohio election laws. Among other things, it eases ballot access for new and unqualified political parties. Hearings will be held over several days, and it isn’t known yet which days will be devoted to ballot access. Ohio’s Secretary of State Jennifer Brunner and her office wrote the bill.
