Prepare to Vote for the Ohio May 3 Primary

Election season is here, with the Ohio May 3 primary quickly approaching! We know that this year has been particularly tough with ongoing redistricting news and uncertainty over the primary. While things are still pending, it is especially important for us advocates to help voters and clear up any confusion there may be with correct and updated information. 

 

The Ohio Voter Rights Coalition remains committed to providing voters with accurate information so that all Ohio voters can have their vote counted and their voices heard at the ballot box. That’s why we want to give you a voter checklist to make sure you are prepared to vote in the May 3 primary.
