As you know, the coronavirus crisis has led to many changes in our daily life – including how we vote. What hasn’t changed is our commitment to making sure every Ohio voter can make their voice heard in this election. Because the Ohio primary has been extended until April 28th and converted to a vote-by-mail process, we need your help to get the word out.
Here are a two things you can do starting today:
• Utilize the social media toolkit (available here) to communicate to your audience about how to request a vote-by-mail ballot and have their voice heard. Included are an infographic poster that can be printed, social media graphics including an animated gif, a frequently asked questions document, and suggested social media messages to help spread the word.
• Use your network to get absentee ballot request forms into the hands of Ohio voters who haven’t already voted. Remember to follow public health guidelines, maintain social distancing and wash your hands frequently!
April 28th is fast approaching, so we need to use every tool at our disposal to spread the word and ensure voters have the opportunity to cast a ballot. We appreciate your help, and encourage you to continue pointing people to VoteOhio.gov as their one-stop shop for election information.
Please let us know if you have any questions.
