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 are asking for our coalition partners and community leaders to help with 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 will try to reach as many low-income voters as possible. We will be targeting low-income housing developments, shelters, community centers, food pantries and other nonprofit agencies working directly with economically disadvantaged Ohioans.
Our priority days of action:
- Sept. 25: National Voter Registration Day
- Oct. 9: Last day to register to vote in November 2018 election
- Nov. 3-4: Last weekend of early voting
- Nov. 6: General Election Day 2018
Why is this 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. The stakes are high this year; voters will pick Ohio’s next governor and U.S. senator, and whoever wins the statewide offices will lead the redistricting process for the next decade. Join us in putting power back into the peoples' hands.
Please take a minute or two to fill out the survey (on the right) and tell us more about you and your organization. Thanks!
