COLUMBUS: Ohio lawmakers have advanced three bills affecting voter and ballot rules in the perennial battleground state as a statewide election draws near.

The Ohio Senate approved a pair of election-related bills Wednesday along party lines. A third measure cleared the Ohio House that backers say would provide added flexibility and cut costs at local election boards.

One bill that cleared the Senate would eliminate so-called “Golden Week,” during which voters can both register and cast an early ballot.

The second bill adds two new required lines to provisional ballot applications — birth date and current address — and clarifies other Election Day procedures that have long been the subject of litigation.

Republican supporters said changes added accuracy and security to counting ballots. Democrats argued they added unneeded hurdles to voting.
