10 Oct 2018
Modified: 04:46:54 PM
Ohio Republicans have stolen elections since Rutherford Hayes in 1876, the candidate with fewer votes. Robert F Kennedy Jr., Rep. Conyers, and Free Press authors have all written articles or books about the Ohio Republican theft of John Kerry's election in 2004. Nationally and in Ohio, Republicans are less than 25% of registered voters.

states along with Texas, North Carolina, Alabama, Georgia, Mississippi,
and Florida. From 1876 to now, Ohio Republicans have been involved in vote fraud.

ballot secrecy is violated. The process is defined as early voting absentee ballot, and
one must put all ones personal information on the envelope
