Letter to Ohio Attorney General Regarding Ohio Law R.C. § 3501.054


On Dec. 2, 2021, Campaign Legal Center (CLC) sent a letter on behalf of All Voting is Local, Ohio Voice and Common Cause Ohio to Ohio Attorney General Dave Yost requesting he issue a formal opinion regarding Ohio law R.C. § 3501.054. The law is causing confusion among local election officials as to what election activities, including critical voter outreach and education efforts, they can continue to conduct in collaboration with outside organizations, and therefore, CLC requested that Attorney General Yost, as the state’s chief law officer, issue a formal opinion clarifying that election officials may continue their important partnerships with pro-voter organizations and groups.
