R.I.P. Dave Girves

Central Ohio progressives have lost a tireless activist, and for many, a good friend when Dave Girves passed away on January 16, 2015. His organizational skills, energy and kindness will be much missed.

Cathy Levine of Universal Health Care Action Network (UHCAN) remembers Dave:

We Need YOU to GOTV

The outcome of this election turns on our ability to get people to come out and vote. You can help by canvassing or phone banking. Canvassers will be going to friendly voters to remind them to vote, early if possible.

Most Recent Voting Hours

Now that the Supreme Court has decided to limit much of Ohio's early voting opportunities it is increasingly important to turn out everyone we can. The following are the current hours:

Tuesday, Oct. 7 through Friday, Oct. 10 - 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. 

Updated Early Voting Hours

The Courts have ordered the restoration of the evening and weekend hours eliminated by our legislature, including the "golden week" when you can both register and vote at the same time. Take advantage of these additional hours lest we lose them again.

Sample Democratic Ballot Now Available!

It is important that we vote not only for state-wide candidates, but all the way down the ballot, including judges.

Please note, early voting begins on September 30th and you can still register until October 6, 2014. That means you can register and vote at the same time during "golden week" from September 30th through October 6th.
