This week the Ohio Controlling Board denied a request from the state's Republican secretary of state to spend $3 million of his own office's money on postage for absentee ballots.

Ohioans voting by mail will have to secure their own postage. It's the latest hurdle in a battle over mail-in voting in Ohio that has seen voting rights groups sue the state.

Here & Now's Tonya Mosley speaks with Frank LaRose, Ohio's secretary of state.
