We will be sponsoring a post card writing campaign to encourage voters in Ohio to vote in a special election.
Background: Ohio has an amendment in the Nov. election that would protect the right to an abortion within the state. Currently, it only takes a simple majority for an amendment to become law; however, the legislature wants to move this to a 60% approval. The state is holding a special election in August to try and pass this new threshold. Since 625,000 Ohians have been purged from the voter rolls since 2018, this postcard campaign is urging voters of color (who are the most likely to have been purged) to check their registration status and if necessary, to re-register by July 10th.
To find out more about this initiative as well as the organization spearheading this effort, please go here: BWPM - Ohio Campaign #1 - Voter Registration
All you need to do is SHOW UP and we will provide all the materials! Contact Kim Hall or any folks from the “SHAG” justice group (David King, Nancy Siegel, Lisa Kimball, Amanda Hall, and Rev Laurel) for any questions
