If April Showers bring May flowers, what does September bring?

September is Voter Registration month! 

Midterm elections this November will affect every justice issue we care about, from abortion rights to global warming to whether teachers can speak truthfully about race, sexual orientation, and gender. Let’s get active to make sure every person’s voice is heard this November!

What we can do together, starting NOW:

1. Check your voter registration: Make sure you haven’t been purged from the voter rolls and that your address is up-to-date: voterlookup.ohiosos.gov/voterlookup.aspx Register to vote or update your address online by October 11 for the November 8 general election: olvr.ohiosos.gov

2. Train to register voters:  Sign up for Voter Registration & Outreach Training focusing on the November General Election, Monday, August 22, 7:00pm on Zoom. Sign up at the JAM table or Register here. Or watch recording after training: League of Women Voters of Metro Columbus – YouTube

3. Register people to vote: Sign up page for voter outreach Notes: Currently we have five locations arranged on three dates. If we fill those quickly, we’ll arrange more. Most of these so far are outside libraries. However, one location, Ohio Dominican on Wednesday, September 28 is an indoor location at a table (esp. for those who can’t stand outside with a clipboard).

4. Fill out mail-in ballot form: Fill out the forms at the JAM table on Sunday and we will take them to Franklin County Board of Elections for you. This frees you up on election day to volunteer, or just know your vote is already in!

 

This fall, we will also have opportunities to Get Out The Vote, and to fight against anti-abortion, anti-protest, and anti-education bills during the Ohio Statehouse’s Lame Duck Session!
