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.

“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.”
