Here is the general voter suppression blog.
This blog will try to list some of the more blatant voter suppression efforts attempted in Ohio by the criminal, racist, unpatriotic Republican party.
Democracy hating GOP criminals (DeJoy and others) crippled the USPS system to steal the election by suppressing the votes
This is true of all swing states where they are facing major delays in returning ballots on time, USPS data shows.

The delays loom large over 28 states that require ballots to reach election officials by Election Day to be counted. https://t.co/DJmo97xODx
Maddow on on-time mail percentages in key battlegrounds:— The Daily Edge (@TheDailyEdge) October 29, 2020
Northern Ohio: 56%
South Florida: 63%
Trump and DeJoy have throttled the US mail in key Democratic strongholds. It is now too late to trust the mail in states that require ballots by Nov. 3.
A federal judge ordered the U.S. Postal Service to implement “extraordinary measures” in 22 districts across the U.S. — including several in battleground states — where on-time delivery of ballots has dipped below a rate of 90% for two days this week. https://t.co/7gJAYYgPXG— The New York Times (@nytimes) October 31, 2020
This is why I BEGGED and BEGGED and BEGGED and BEGGED the House to hold ADDITIONAL HEARINGS and to let POSTAL WORKERS testify and not just the top brass. https://t.co/3v1TOnx3Cp— Don Winslow (@donwinslow) October 30, 2020

Don't accept this.
This was Trump and DeJoy's plan all along. https://t.co/3v1TOnx3Cp
Given Supreme Court rulings on mail ballots and Trump's effort to undermine the Postal Service, I strongly suggest that you now vote in person - try early voting or find a drop box. Protect your health but don’t let anyone deprive you of your most precious right. Have a plan.— Eric Holder (@EricHolder) October 27, 2020
Trump supporting company fails to deliver absentee ballots
An Ohio printing company that promised to print and mail tens of thousands of absentee ballots to voters in Ohio and Pennsylvania has failed to deliver many ballots on time or mailed them to the wrong address.

Several Ohio and Pennsylvania counties are scrambling for a contingency plan after the company they contracted to print absentee ballots, which until recently was flying a “Trump 2020” flag, also found itself unable to meet demand. https://t.co/g2Hvp3Tj8q— The New York Times (@nytimes) October 16, 2020
Several Ohio counties that expected absentee ballots printed from Midwest Direct are now scrambling for alternatives.— Kyle Griffin (@kylegriffin1) October 17, 2020
In Pennsylvania, 30,000 ballots from Midwest Direct went to wrong addresses.
This summer, Midwest Direct began flying a Trump 2020 flag. https://t.co/ugISzvznqB
"It was a curious juxtaposition — a company in the business of distributing absentee ballots through the mail showing a preference for a president who has spent months denigrating the practice of voting by mail."https://t.co/ZLTXWIFMBt— Maddow Blog (@MaddowBlog) October 16, 2020
Ohio’s politicians have made voting far easier for Republicans and far more difficult for Democrats.
Blaming voters for the long lines they endure ignores the massive, intentional disparity in resources between the more & less populous parts of the state.

Limiting Ballot boxes to one per county
This whole story. It’s a real problem that Ohio Secretary of State is taking advice from discredited vote suppressor extraordinaire Hans von Spakovsky. https://t.co/p1wFaY2sCU— Vanita Gupta (@vanitaguptaCR) October 17, 2020
Ohio should be ashamed. Voter suppression in action. pic.twitter.com/IXXKNQT3NG— jamie (@gnuman1979) October 18, 2020
