State Senator Frank LaRose (R-Copley Township) was today named the Legislator of the Year by the Ohio Association of Election Officials (OAEO) at the organization’s annual conference. LaRose was recognized for his exceptional support and commitment to improving Ohio’s election process, including authoring legislation to establish an online voter registration system in Ohio and his work to support the funding of electronic poll books in the state budget.

“I am honored to accept this award from the Ohio Association of Election Officials,” said LaRose. “We have made great strides this year in modernizing Ohio's elections process to make it more fair, secure, and efficient and I look forward to further action to ensure that the voice of all Ohio voters is heard.”

The award is given annually to one Republican and one Democrat who have demonstrated a high interest in election policy, have had significant influence on elections legislation, and have worked closely with local election officials to craft meaningful election reforms.

"I'm very appreciative to have received this award from an association made up of incredibly hard-working professionals whose commitment to the elections process allows our democracy to thrive in Ohio."

Ohio Association of Election Officials is a bipartisan organization representing the members and employees of Ohio’s county boards of elections, their directors and deputy directors.
