COLUMBUS, Ohio (LifeSiteNews) — Ohio elections will now have added layers of security to ensure the integrity of each vote, following legislation signed Friday by Governor Mike DeWine, a Republican.
Gov. DeWine signed House Bill 458, which requires voter identification and also requires votes to be counted faster after Election Day. The legislation also limits drop boxes to one per county and the location must be on county property, according to an Ohio CBS News affiliate.
Gov. DeWine stated:
Elections integrity is a significant concern to Americans on both sides of the aisle across the country. At the same time, I have long believed that Ohio does a good job of administering elections, as we have provided ample opportunities to cast votes while avoiding the problems we have seen in recent federal elections in other states.
“No piece of legislation is a silver-bullet solution, but we are once again showing Ohioans that we take their concerns seriously and are dedicated to continuously improving our elections,” Secretary of State Frank LaRose said in a statement, as reported by 10 WBNS.
Sign the petition to let Abp. Broglio know that you support his stance against the woke mob!
In a thrilling win against the leftist infiltrators in the Church, the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) made a key electoral decision at their Fall General Assembly in Baltimore, Maryland last week.
As reported on LifeSiteNews, Archbishop Timothy Broglio of the Archdiocese for the Military Services, USA, was elected Tuesday to serve as the next president of the USCCB.
Broglio has consistently defended Catholic teaching – his orthodox record has been a constant source of frustration to liberal bishops across the country. The military archbishop is one of a small number of prelates who:
- Opposed COVID-era restrictions on public Masses.
- Denounced COVID shot mandates for US Catholic servicemen.
- Supports freedom of conscience exemptions to jab mandates.
- Backed former President Donald Trump’s ban on gender-confused troops.
- Implemented guidelines prohibiting military chaplains from blessing same-sex unions.
- Recognizes homosexuality as a root cause of the clerical sex abuse crisis.
- Stressed that Pope Francis’ affirmation of same-sex unions is NOT Church teaching.
Abp. Broglio has shown support for our pro-life, pro-family, and pro-freedom movement – let’s show our support for him!
Say ‘THANK YOU’ to Abp. Broglio for standing up to left-wing bishops and defending Catholic values!
Tuesday’s election was a clear rejection of decidedly liberal candidates, including pro-LGBT Archbishop Paul Etienne of Seattle and radical leftist Archbishop Gustavo Garcia-Síller of San Antonio.
Left-wing Catholics are outraged about the results of the USCCB elections – now more than ever, Abp. Broglio needs the support of faithful Catholics like YOU!
STAND WITH ABP. BROGLIO against the woke mob and left-wing infiltrators of the Church! Add your name to the growing list NOW.

The legislation requires faster “curing” of ballots, which means fixing defects on them. The shorter time frame reduces the likelihood of fraud by requiring election officials to move quickly to wrap up an election, not dragging it out for weeks.
The legislation comes after nationwide elections that have brought forth concerns about voter integrity.
Former Department of Justice senior researcher and economist John Lott said he found statistical evidence of voter fraud in the 2020 election and recommended voter ID as one way to rectify the situation. A documentary by conservative filmmaker Dinesh D’Souza and True the Vote also raised concerns about the use of “mules,” or paid harvesters of ballots. The movie 2000 Mules uses phone tracking data to show the possibility of illegal ballot harvesting in the 2020 election.
Other groups, such as the Public Interest Legal Foundation, have used statistical analysis to point out the potential for fraud in the widespread us of mail-in balloting.
