Early voting began Tuesday, April 10th! Before you vote, read about State Issue 1 – Congressional Redistricting Reform that is on the May 8th Primary Ballot. This proposed amendment would end the partisan process for drawing congressional districts and replace it with a process with the goals of promoting bipartisanship, keeping local communities together, and having district boundaries that are more compact.

The Ohio Democratic Party announced it will be hosting, with the Ohio Democratic County Chairs Association – and co-hosted by many local county parties, a series of debates, forums, town halls and other events with the Democratic candidates for governor and down ticket candidates around the state. These events are designed to introduce the Democratic statewide candidates to all Ohio voters. If you can’t attend, ODCCA and ODP are live streaming and videotaping the events to be posted.

Every day Ohioans are becoming more actively involved in taking new laws passed by the Republican-controlled Ohio House and Senate to the people for our voice and vote at the ballot, as we saw with the SB5/Issue 2 Referendum that was resoundingly defeated by the people of Ohio in November 2010! Know the petition process BEFORE you sign a petition!
