New opportunity: Thousands of vote by mail applications have been rejected, and many affected voters might not be aware of it.

GCC is providing training and lists of people to call each Wednesday evening through the month of October, 5:00-8:00 p.m. starting October 14. Register here if you are interested.

The League of Ohio is working with a coalition of voting rights organizations to organize and train volunteers to help voters on and before Election Day.

Consider pitching in. There are opportunities for everybody here, including things you can do at home or at the polls, during the early vote period and/or on Election Day. Training will be provided, most of it online and on-demand!

  • Volunteer as a nonpartisan Poll Monitor during the early vote period and on Election Day! Poll Monitors will be posted outside polling places to answer questions and be on the lookout for problems.

  • Volunteer as a Social Media Monitor to watch social media posts to catch and correct misinformation. You can do this at home!

  • Volunteer to work at the 866-Our-Vote Hotline Command Center. Legal experience is preferred here. Work to resolve issues arising at the polls.

  • Sign up to text bank to encourage people to vote.

HELP TRIPLE VOTER TURNOUT!

"Who are the three people you will encourage to vote?"


On Election Day, join Mobilize the Vote 2020 and CDWC 
for 
Vote Tripling! Help make Trump a one-term president right here in Ohio. If we win Ohio, he has no chance of a second term. But it means we need as many voters as possible to turn out to vote.

Vote tripling is a tactic for increasing turnout by asking voters to encourage friends and family to vote. 

Polling place vote tripling is one of the safest ways to increase voter turnout on Election Day, especially during the COVID-19 pandemic. 

It's simple: you stand outside a polling location, talk to voters after they've voted, and ask them to call or text 3 friends to get out and vote.

It's easy, fun, and effective!

The first step is a short Zoom training.
Sign up for training on Thursday, Oct 22, at 7:00 pm here:

Then sign up for an Election Day shift: 

We need lots of help on Election Day!
Join us!

Ohio Election Protection Volunteer Opportunities 2020


What is Election Protection: The goal of our non-partisan election protection program is to ensure Ohio voters have the information they need in order to cast their ballot this November. We work to minimize barriers to the ballot box, particularly for under-represented communities. By creating a simple and satisfying voting experience, we can empower voters and create a more representative democracy.

The first component of the program is the Election Protection Hotline, 866-OUR-VOTE, the nation's largest non-partisan hotline to ask voting questions and report voting problems. The second component is a field program for volunteers to promote awareness of the 866-OUR-VOTE Hotline and assist voters with voting questions or problems.

Who We Are: We are the Ohio Voter Rights Coalition, a network of nonpartisan voter advocates including ACLU of Ohio, All Voting is Local, Common Cause Ohio, the Lawyers' Committee for Civil Rights under Law, League of Women Voters of Ohio, and more.



From the Supreme Court of Ohio, Commission on Continuing Legal Education:
 
CLE CREDIT FOR ATTORNEYS WHO SERVE AS POLL WORKERS DURING THE NOVEMBER 3, 2020 ELECTION

Due to the COVD-19 pandemic, there is an extreme shortage of precinct election officials (poll workers) across the country. In light of the dire need for new poll workers, the Supreme Court of Ohio issued an order granting CLE credit to volunteer attorneys and judges who serve as poll workers in Ohio during the November 3, 2020 Election.

To earn four (4) hours of general CLE credit, the attorney or judge must complete the Secretary of State Precinct Election Official Training and serve as a poll worker for their county board of elections on Election Day. Additional information can be found in the FAQ on the Supreme Court website.

Visit the PEO Sign Up Page on the Ohio Secretary of State website to sign up to be a Precinct Election Official.

Help Spread the Truth

Betsy Rader's opponent, Jerry Cirino, is President of the Board of Cleveland Right-to-Life. In addition to opposing all abortions, even in cases of rape or incest, he supports the Heartbeat Bill. He opposes gay marriage and LGBTQ rights. He opposed Medicaid expansion and is endorsed by an extreme anti-vaccination group. When Covid-19 hit our state, and Ohioans needed protection and guidance, he opposed former Ohio Health Department Director Amy Acton's science-based efforts to save lives.

Now Cirino is running vicious attack ads against Betsy Rader through television, radio, and direct mail. These ads are not truthful about what happened in a workplace harassment case from 25 years ago - a case where Betsy was part of the solution, not part of the problem. She arrived at the company after the incidents and worked to change the culture there for the better.

Betsy Rader comes with a long history of advocacy for women. She's endorsed by Planned Parenthood, NARAL, and Emily's List, and is an esteemed civil rights attorney who represents victims of discrimination. She is a respected speaker on the very topic of preventing sexual harassment in the workplace.

Please share this information, Betsy's video linked here:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UIndE68xuos, and the truth about Betsy, which is at her website http://www.betsyrader4ohio.com (where you can also donate in support of her campaign).  Her district covers Lake, Geagua and Portage counties so make sure all your friends in those areas know about Betsy and about her opponent.
