Ohio Legislator Seeks to Eliminate Certain Special Elections
Ohio Sen. Kris Jordan recently introduced a bill to eliminate special elections in February and August.
His proposal is the result of historically low voter turnout in Ohio special elections. Fewer than 10 percent of residents usually participate in any special election, and an election can cost the state $4 to $6 million.
