How Do You Become a Registered Democrat?

Under Ohio law, an elector affiliates with a political party by voting in that party’s primary election. An elector is considered to be a member of a political party if he or she voted in that party’s primary election within the preceding two calendar years, or if he or she did not vote in any other party’s primary election within the preceding two calendar years. (ORC 3513.05. Par. 7)

 

REMEMBER…whichever party ballot you chose at the  election will be your party of record

until next primary election is held.

 

If you requested a Democratic ballot at the most recent primary election, you will be affiliated with the Democratic Party until the next primary election held in your district, regardless of your previous voting history.

IN THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES
Mr. THOMPSON of Mississippi introduced the following bill:

 

A BILL to terminate United States Secret Service protection for felons.

Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States of America in Congress assembled,

 

SHORT TITLE.

This Act may be cited as the ‘‘Denying Infinite Security and Government Resources Allocated toward Convicted and Extremely Dishonorable Former Protectees Act’’ or the ‘‘DISGRACED Former Protectees Act’’.

  1. DENYING CERTAIN FELONS SECRET SERVICE PROTECTION.

  2. Section 3056(a) of title 18, United States Code, is 

  3. amended by striking ‘‘declined.’’ and inserting ‘‘declined".

  4. The protection authorized in paragraphs (1) through (8)

  5. shall terminate for any person upon sentencing following

  6. conviction for a Federal or State offense that is punishable

  7. for a term of imprisonment of at least one year.’’.

Congressman Thompson said this was not intended to be punitive but rather to resolve any conflict between the Secret Service and prison authorities.
