Increasing the safety of in-person voting during the Era of COVID-19


The Ohio Voter Rights Coalition would like to invite the media to a press conference devoted to voting safely in person. Elections officials are now planning for Early-in-person and Election Day Voting on November 3. Over 200 Ohio physicians, medical researchers, public health experts and other health personnel have now come together in support of six additional statewide protocols to maximize voter and poll worker safety, as well as many voting rights and allied organizations and faith leaders. These protocols are set forth in a letter sent on Aug. 3 to Ohio Secretary of State Frank LaRose.
