The research staff here at Innovation Ohio put together a great list of links and information for Ohio voters. Thanks to them and to all of the volunteers, poll workers, public servants and voter advocates – from all corners of our American political landscape – who try mightily every November to ensure that above winners and losers our elections remain fair, open and transparent. Let’s go:
The first thing to note – there are lots of places to get voter information. The horse’s mouth, so to speak, in Ohio is the Ohio Secretary of State’s office. You’ll note that many of the links below will take you to a page at the Secretary of State’s website. Another thing to know is that there are many voter advocate groups and their affiliated websites out there. Here at IO, we especially trust the League of Women Voters’ Vote411.org and Election Protection. The League of Women Voters is a highly respected non-partisan voter advocacy group that you’ve probably heard about since you were a kid. Election Protection is a partnership among several civil rights, consumer protection, organized labor, public policy and even some state-level League of Women Voters chapters dedicated to ensuring that everyone who has the right to vote gets to vote.
