COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Ohio’s elections chief has released a video explaining how Ohioans’ ballots are handled once they’re cast and why vote counting is both bipartisan and secure.

The video is one in a series of educational tools from Secretary of State Jon Husted (HYOO’-sted) about voting.

It’s also Husted’s latest effort to underscore the integrity of Ohio’s election system.

Husted and several nonpartisan voting rights groups have pushed back against suggestions by GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump that the state’s election could be compromised.

Husted has reiterated that he’s confident Ohio’s electoral process is secure.

Husted, a Republican, says Ohio takes pride in being a place where it is both easy to vote and hard to cheat.
