Tell Secretary of State Husted: Restore Ohio's early voting hours

Following unprecedented Black voter turnout in Ohio during the 2008 presidential election, there has been an increase in restrictions that diminish the Black community's electoral power.

Now, under the leadership of Secretary of State Jon Husted, Ohio legislators have turned to eliminating the opportunity to cast absentee ballots on weekends leading up to Election Day. This is a clear attempt to limit Black voters’ and other urban dwellers’ access to the polls.

For many of us, voting in person is a particularly meaningful experience and due to work and family commitments, weekend voting is most convenient. Join us in telling Jon Husted to bring back weekend early voting hours so that all Ohioans have the opportunity to vote.
