COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — The Military Voter Protection Project has praised Ohio for ensuring military members and their families can participate in elections.
The group examined states' efforts to provide voter assistance at military bases, use online election materials and pass state legislation to make it easier for military members to vote.
The organization's president recognized state and local election officials for making military voters a priority and setting an example for other states.
Ohio won high marks for working with local military installations, communicating with military voters and sending absentee ballots at least 45 days before elections.
Other states it honored for their work were Alaska, Colorado, Florida, Indiana, Massachusetts, Minnesota, Mississippi, Nevada, North Carolina, Texas, Utah, Virginia, Washington and West Virginia.
