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.

POLL WORKERS DURING THE NOVEMBER 3, 2020 ELECTION

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

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.
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.
