Lake County's state Sen. Nina Turner to introduce voter protection bill

State Sen. Nina Turner plans to announce the introduction of the Voter Protection Act at a press conference today at the Ohio Statehouse in Columbus.

Turner, D-Cleveland, said the bill would emphasize promoting and facilitating ballot access, prevent arbitrary disenfranchisement of voters, and encourage county election boards to make bipartisan adjustments to meet the needs of their communities.

Turner represents Ohio Senate District 25, which consists of Eastlake, Fairport Harbor, Grand River, Lakeline, Mentor Ward 4, Mentor-on-the-Lake, Painesville, parts of Painesville Township, Timberlake, Wickliffe, Willoughby and Willowick in Lake County , plus Euclid, Richmond Heights and other eastern Cuyahoga County communities.
