Dayton, Ohio (AP) -- Ohio's elections chief has ordered up the utility records of a state senator accused of not living where he's registered to vote.
Secretary of State Jennifer Brunner has directed the Montgomery County Board of Elections in Dayton to consider the subpoenaed documentation of water, electric and natural gas usage by Jon Husted.
Republican Sen. Husted is the former Ohio House Speaker.
The investigation by democrat Brunner concerns whether he lives in a Dayton suburb.
Husted has said his legal residence is Kettering though his duties often keep him in the Columbus area.
Brunner said Monday she hopes the elections board will resolve the question of Husted's residency soon.
Board director Steve Harsman says the matter will be considered at a June 23 meeting.
