Cleveland has a competitive Mayoral primary coming up in September and then there are some important local races this November with every City Councilmember forced to campaign. This is the first election with on-line registration. It is too late to register for the primary, but there is over one month to register for the November election.
According to the Ohio Organizing Collaborative staff, "For the first time, Ohioans are able to register to vote and update their registration through the Secretary of State’s website. So whether you’ve sat the last few elections out, moved since you last registered, or never voted before, you can get registered or update your registration today. The last few months have been… kinda scary. I don’t know what the future holds for Ohio and our country, but I do know that there are important elections coming up this year and in 2018 that will have a huge impact our communities. That’s why it’s so important that we all register and vote."
The November election is November 7, 2017 polls open from 6:30 a.m to 7:30 p.m. Remember that for homeless people "Vote by Mail" is the best option.
It is so important for everyone to participate and to actually vote. No matter how many barriers Ohio puts in your way, people died for everyone to have the right to cast a ballot. Please do your civic duty and vote in both the primary and the General Election.
