Make the Commitment Today
Remember ten days ago when I sent out a plea for your help over the next 31 weekends before Election Day? Well, now we are down to 29. The countdown continues and I am asking you to commit at least one weekend day per month to help with our voter contact efforts from now through Election Day. In April, we will be canvassing at 1pm on Saturday and Sunday. We are talking to voters about what issues are important to them and identifying undecided voters for our state House candidates and in the Auditor’s race. Can you commit to helping at one of our staging locations this weekend?

Have you signed the Voter Bill of Rights Petition?
Please don’t wait. We need your signature now to put an end to the attacks on voter’s rights in Ohio. We must collect over 385,000 signatures across the state (including over 4,000 here in Butler County) by July 2. This important effort, led by the Ohio Legislative Black Caucus, will enshrine in the Ohio Constitution voter rights and access to the polls, guaranteeing a 35-day window for early voting, voting the weekend before Election Day, and more open access to the ballot box. Petitions are available to sign and circulate. If you canvass this weekend, you can sign one of our candidates’ petitions. We also have petitions available for signing at headquarters on Wednesdays from 10 – 4pm or on Thursdays from 1-4pm. Email headquarters if you need to arrange another day and time to sign. Interested in helping to circulate a petition? Please email Jocelyn today.
