The November 6, 2018 General Election culminated with a historic 52.9% voter turnout. The veteran Senator offered his congratulations to the election officials for the fluidity with which the electoral processes ran, from the absentee voting to Election Day. He spoke extensively with each of the department managers about initiatives that would substantially improve access to vote prior to Election Day.

Some of the proposals positively affect Spanish-speaking voters. It was suggested that there should be more clarity in the forms that are used to register voters. He was asked to create state issued bilingual voter educational materials. Right now only the Cuyahoga County and the Lorain County Boards of Elections provides all voting materials in Spanish and English. The incoming Secretary of State agreed with the officials on the viability of these measures. If implemented, there is hope that a deeper understanding of the voting process will encourage the Latino community to participate in the democratic process.
