Current Action Alerts
Bit by bit, legislators are chipping away at our access to the polls.
Take action below to stop this erosion of our voting rights.
Several bills are pending in the Ohio General Assembly that will reduce access to the polls. The fastest moving is Senate Bill 238, which will shave a week off of early voting and eliminate the brief window of time where voters can register and cast an early ballot on the same day. (The Plain Dealer wrote a great editorial about these bills on Saturday, November 30th.)
It’s not likely to stop there. Soon legislators will be talking about even deeper cuts to early in-person voting limits, as well as vote by mail restrictions, and stricter voter ID laws.
These proposals will make voting harder for disabled Ohioans and the elderly, for those who lack transportation or who have recently moved, and for those with inflexible schedules.
And, by proposing these changes piecemeal, it is harder for advocates to fight against them.
Legislators should be making it easier for Ohioans to vote – not creating obstacles to make it harder.
Tell the chair of the Ohio House Policy and Legislative Oversight Committee to stop making it harder to vote.
