Melody Stewart
for her historic win as the first African American woman elected to a seat on the Ohio Supreme Court.

Congratulations also to her fellow Democrat
Michael Donnelly
for gaining a Supreme Court seat as well. 

We are excited to see so many of our excellent statewide incumbents who were re-elected, including 
Senator Sherrod Brown and
Congresswomen Marcia Fudge and Marcy Kaptur.

We congratulate some first-time candidates, and some who ran for a new office:
State Senator-elect Nickie Antonio
and State Representatives-elect Juanita Brent
Phil Robinson, and Casey Weinstein

And congratulations to first-time elected judges
Michelle J. Sheehan, Emily Hagan, Deborah M. Turner, Ashley Kilbane, Jennifer L. O'Malley, and William T. McGinty

While we are profoundly disappointed and frustrated by many of the devastating losses in Ohio, we are very happy about the Democrats gaining control of the U.S. House of Representatives, helped by the
historic victories of women across the country. A record number of women won, and while Betsy Rader, Susan Moran Palmer, Theresa Gasper, and Janet Garrett were not successful, they were 
outstanding candidates.

We are heartened by the tremendous efforts of so many volunteers who knocked doors, made phone calls, and wrote postcards to help elect Democrats. We are emboldened by the number of first-time volunteers who were activated by the need for change. We also recognize the record increase in the number of voters who turned out in Cuyahoga County. We will continue to build on the activism of so many to promote the values we care about so deeply. 

We will not stop. It is who we are.

Stay Informed

The League of Women Voters online voter's guide, VOTE411.org, is where you can find essential information that includes voter guides, absentee ballot and early voting information, biographical information about candidates, and both upcoming candidate forums and videos of forums. 

KEEP UP THE PRESSURE (just because)!
