COLUMBUS- State Senator Frank LaRose (R-Copley) this week met with a delegation of Bulgarian members of parliament and senior staff to exchange ideas about election policy and share information about Ohio's electoral process.

The Bulgarian delegation spent several days visiting Ohio as part of the U.S. Department of State's International Visitor Leadership Program. Their program focus, "U.S. Campaign Practices and Electoral Process," brought them to Columbus to meet with key officials in the battleground state, including LaRose.

LaRose hosted a meeting with several members of the Bulgarian National Assembly, senior staff members and several members of Bulgaria's Central Election Commission to discuss the challenges they share in developing and administering policies that promote fair and accessible elections. 

"I was honored to spend time with these talented leaders from Bulgaria, a remarkable country I had the opportunity to visit back in 2000," said LaRose. "From adopting online voter registration to making redistricting procedures more equitable, Ohio faces electoral hurdles that these leaders have also confronted firsthand. By hearing their perspective on the policies we are currently working to change, I came away with greater insight into our own system of government and was happy to share some ideas on how they can continue to improve theirs."
