ACCESS
 
Rescind restrictions on In Person Early Voting – One size does not t all.
 
Ensure that counties have enough precincts, polling locations, and parking in 2014 because the num-bers of precincts and polling locations have both shrunk by nearly 20% from 2004 to 2012. (*and by 25% in Cuyahoga County from 2008 to 2012)
 
VOTER
 
OUTREACH & INCLUSION
 
Reach out to all kinds of voter groups, not just to those with right
-
leaning political stripes.
 
Reach out to colleges and universities and recent college graduates in accordance with legal settlement to make sure they know how and
 
where to vote.
 
Send absentee ballot applications to ALL voters—do not exclude voters that the Secretary’s ofce has unilaterally labeled as “Inactive.”
 
Don’t settle for low turnout in the midterm elections. Study and implement methods to increase participation in our democracy.
 
PUBLIC CONFIDENCE & 
 
ACCOUNTABILITY 
 
Stop Boards of Elections from referring for prosecution voters who cast an absentee ballot, lose faith that it will be counted, and then vote provisionally on Election Day. No voter was prosecuted for this legal act, and the harassment
 
has to stop.
 
Follow the law requiring public comment on
 
directives.
 
VOTER TOOLS
 
Give voters the ability to search for their polling
 
location by their home address on the Secretary’s website.
 
Restore the voter education videos for deaf voters to the Secretary’s website.

Voting shouldn’t take all day.
 
Take steps now to ensure a more  participative democracy later. Elected ocials should work to encourage voting, not complicate it.
