We are still reeling from the recent, devastating Supreme Court decision to remove the fundamental right to control of our own bodies. The court has also favored tax support for religious schools and expanded gun rights. Still to come is a critical environmental ruling. All this (and more) means that the midterm elections in November are more important than ever. In the face of the extreme Republican agenda, it is crucial that we elect Democrats at every level of government in Ohio. Please do all you can, from offering financial support to personal volunteering. The CDWC will continue to inform you of ways you can participate. Sign up for our newsletter here.

Judicial Votes Count
The Ohio Supreme Court, Bar Association, League of Women Voters of Ohio, and others have joined together for "Judicial Votes Count" (JVC) an online website with information on candidates for judge across the state and with educational information about what judges do and how to evaluate candidates. You can visit online at www.judicialvotescount.org. 
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.
