2008 Ohio Elections Summit

Published: March 11, 2009

Shortly after the voting ended on Nov. 4, 2008, Ohio Secretary of State Jennifer Brunner announced a bipartisan convening of election officials and voting experts to study the recent election with a goal of determining what went right as well as what could be improved.

This report aims to survey in some detail the policy concerns regarding Ohio’s election system that emerged from the December summit. Additionally, it strives give coherent shape to the varied responses voiced by summit participants and subsequent interviewees. Our goal was to produce a document that faithfully records different points of view on Ohio election policy in an organized format that will be useful to election officials.
