    On behalf of Governor John Kasich, welcome to “MY OHIO PLATE.” Ohio’s new license plate and driver’s license will showcase how Ohioans feel about Ohio. Please select the one slogan, phrase or fact that you think best describes Ohio! The deadline for submitting your recommendation is January 8, 2012. We’ll review your suggestions and unveil the final version later in 2012.

    “Bargaining Rights” was my write in suggestion, Mr Kasich. -Why does Alan Harper dislike me so?-

    Kasich seems bound and determined to replace every last thing that Strickland did no matter what it is.

    I like this plate over the farm scene I have now. When it’s my time to renew, I’m switching plates.

    They look a heck of a lot better than the current ones.

    But this one was a good call.

    Ohio: The envelope state (judging by the design)

    The Beautiful Ohio plates had their flaws, but overall I liked them a bit better than the new design.

    I kind of like the sample design posted that has a whole bunch of slogans, facts, URLs and other stuff all scattered about in slightly different (but complimentary) typefaces.

    I’d rather see that instead of having it narrowed down to just one.

    And yes, much better than the current plates. I do like the blue/yellow/green colors from a distance, but up close the clip-art-like design is ridiculous.

    This new design is so much better than the current one. That mess was part of the reason I kept the old Birthplace of Aviation red, white and blue plates.

    +1 for involving CCAD on the new design.

    Yes, a big kudos to Kasich (or whoever decided) on tapping CCAD for this project.

    I thought Kasich was all about saving money. Designing a new license plate cost money, I thought. -Why does Alan Harper dislike me so?-

    I might actually be getting new plates if this is the design. I refused to change them from the white-orange style that was almost a decade old because I hated the farmland ones.

    If you like the new design, you’ll also enjoy the new driver license –

    This may be the first thing I’ve approved of Kasich doing to date :)

    I believe what we are voting for is the slogan between the county and expiration tags, not a repeating phrase.

    Anyway, about the new licenses as well….

    Pink is out; New Ohio driver’s license design revealed
    The Columbus Dispatch Monday November 28, 2011 8:46 PM

    Come 2013, Gov. John Kasich will wage full-scale war against Ohio’s pink driver’s license.

    In January 2013, the state will begin to issue a new driver’s license devoid of the salmon-colored hue and background found on Ohio’s current license. When Kasich was issued his latest license in May, he noticed the pink hue and said “it’s going.”

    The state’s new license, which like its new license plate was designed by Columbus College of Art & Design students, has a red top with white background covered by numerous words. The new driver’s license and license plates were crafted through a project led by Mark Kvamme, interim chief investment officer at JobsOhio.
