$130K in taxpayer money to sign up 540 Ohio voters - was it worth it?

Ohio Secretary of State Frank LaRose’s mailing to thousands of voters recently purged from the rolls under a controversial state law prompted a scant 540 people to re-register to vote.

With printing and postage costs of $130,512, that’s about $242 per voter registration.

“Every vote matters, and that’s why our ‘Fresh Start Campaign’ left no stone unturned,” LaRose said in a statement.

“Moving forward, we’re working on finding ways to modernize our system so Ohioans can update their registration whenever they interact with state government. By doing so, we’ll be fulfilling our obligation to state and federal law to ensure election integrity, all while minimizing the impact to infrequent voters.”

1. Wrong headline, Disparch. It should be, "Voter Purge Costs

Ohio Taxpayers $130k to Correct."
