OHIO Early Vote Begins TUESDAY in 6 Counties!

Please spread to anyone in Ohio!!!

VOTE TODAY OHIO

LAST WEEK TO RE-REGISTER TO VOTE

EARLY VOTE STARTS THIS TUESDAY,

SEPTEMBER 28, NOON

KICK-OFF RALLIES IN AT LEAST SIX COUNTIES

Ohio has the best early vote laws in the country.

Starting THIS TUESDAY, you can REGISTER AND VOTE AT THE SAME TIME FOR A WHOLE WEEK (UNTIL MONDAY OCTOBER 2 –in most Ohio counties). This is the ideal opportunity for youth, students, renters, and first time voters (because most of us have moved since 2008 and need to re-register!)

To raise awareness about “Golden Week” we are launching a new program: “Vote Today Ohio.”

Five Ohio counties are organizing quick lunchtime rallies on Tuesday for the first day of Early Voting.  The goal is to get word-of-mouth and media attention for Ohio’s unique opportunity to register and early vote at the same time. If you’re planning to vote on Tuesday or interested in helping organize or attend a local rally please let us know and we’ll connect you with local organizers.

Vote Today Ohio is a non-partisan partnership of ProgressOhio.org with numerous state and local organizations [list here?].
