Ohio’s Secretary of State is pushing Congress to pass a law that limits the federal government’s role in elections.
Secretary of State Jon Husted fears the Department of Homeland Security might somehow declare states' elections systems critical infrastructure and put them under federal control. So he wants a federal law to prevent that possibility from ever happening.
“All I’m asking them to do is clarify it in the law. If nobody wants it, then we should clearly say they can’t do it in law.”
