COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) -- The official who oversees Ohio's elections says he doesn't agree with a measure proposed by some fellow Republicans to require voters to show photo IDs at the polls.
Secretary of State John Husted tells The Columbus Dispatch on Thursday that he would not change current policy that allows voters to prove their identities with photo IDs or other documents, such as utility bills or paychecks.
A bill approved by the Ohio House would require voters to show the photo ID before casting an in-person ballot. It is now being reviewed by the Senate.
Husted instead proposes changes for voters casting early ballots or provisional ballots. He says those voters should be required to give their full Social Security numbers instead of the currently required last four digits.

DAYTON — A man walking his dog Sunday evening found a firearm in a field, according to a Dayton police report.
Officers were dispatched to the 1500 block of North Euclid Avenue around 7:23 p.m. Sunday.
The man said he was returning from a walk with his dog when he stumbled upon a gun in a field by the intersection of Cornell Drive and Harvard Boulevard, read the report.
He reportedly did not have anything to wrap around the firearm, so he picked it up bare-handed.
Police removed a live round from the chamber of the Smith & Wesson SD40VE, according to the report.
The magazine was reportedly loaded with eight live rounds.
Officers also went to the field and noted an indentation in the grass where the gun was found, read the report.
The police department’s record section confirmed that the gun was reported as stolen from Cincinnati in June 2014, according to the report.

DAYTON — WHIO radio is hosting a food and donation benefiting the House of Bread on Thursday morning.
AM 1290 and News 95.7 WHIO is broadcasting live from 5 to 10 a.m. during Miami Valley’s Morning News from the lawn outside of their studios on 1611 S. Main St. in Dayton. The goal this year is to fill three vans with donations for the House of Bread.
WHIO radio’s Larry Hansgen is hosting the show, and will be joined by Storm Center 7 Meteorologist Kirstie Zontini.
“In addition to the daily needed staple items, we could also use cash donations,” Hansgen said. “In the spring, the flat-top electric griddle died, and it will cost $4,900 to replace it. I’ve spent enough time volunteering in that kitchen to know how difficult it is to prepare lunch each day without that vital piece of equipment.”
