What is Ohio Votes?
Ohio Votes is the Coalition on Homelessness and Housing in Ohio’s civic engagement initiative. For over a decade, Ohio Votes has been partnering with advocates around the state to promote election accessibility and engage more low-income voters in the democratic process.
We work with coalition partners and community leaders to engage in voter outreach efforts, which include posting and distributing voter education materials, tabling at community events, training advocates, registering voters, collecting pledge cards, promoting early voting, and transporting voters to early voting locations.
We strive to reach as many low-income voters as possible. We target low-income housing developments, shelters, community centers, food pantries and other nonprofit agencies working directly with economically disadvantaged Ohioans.
Why is this program important?
Political leaders pay attention to communities who vote. If we want elected officials to address poverty, homelessness and housing instability then we need to “voterize” the hundreds of thousands of Ohioans affected by these issues.
Please take a minute or two to fill out the survey (on the right) and tell us more about you and your organization. Thanks!
