Ohio elections chief calls voter database bill a missed opportunity for online registration

An Ohio bill aimed at bolstering the battleground state's voter registration database is headed to the governor's desk.
The Ohio Association of Election Officials supports the bill. Minority House Democrats opposed it.
A spokesman for Secretary of State Jon Husted says the proposal is a missed opportunity to also let residents register to vote online. Currently, voters can only update their addresses over the Internet.
Wednesday is the last day the House expects to be in session this year. Senators already wrapped up their work.
