COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - The state's top elections official says online voter registration can be implemented in Ohio as soon as state lawmakers pass it.

Secretary of State Jon Husted said Thursday a lack of online registration is one of the presidential battleground state's voting deficiencies.

Republican leaders who control the state House and Senate say their GOP caucuses have not taken positions on the issue. Senate President Keith Faber says his fellow Republicans have mixed feelings on letting residents register to vote online.

Husted and the leaders discussed their policy plans for the year at a legislative preview session for journalists, organized by The Associated Press.

Others scheduled to appear at the forum include Democratic legislative leaders, Republican Gov. John Kasich, Auditor Dave Yost and Attorney General Mike DeWine.
