Protect Ohio’s Vote
Ohio is an original offender in suppressing the right to vote. Over the years, hundreds of thousands of voters in Ohio, many from low-income households, have found out they have been purged from the voting rolls, a move used to disenfranchise voters of color. Back in 2015, Cuyahoga County, Ohio's largest county, canceled the registrations of 40,000 people with most of them living in low income neighborhoods that are predominantly populated by people of color.
While all Ohio voters have the opportunity to vote from the convenience of their own homes by requesting an absentee ballot, if their registration is cancelled, as has happened frequently in the past, they will be unable to do so. Given the many voter suppression tactics that have been used by Ohio election officials, it is more important than ever that we work together to ensure that every voter knows if their registration is up to date and takes the steps necessary to vote from home.
