More on Voting

Thanks to Jennifer Brunner, Ohio Secretary of State

Great News for opening access to voting in Ohio!!!
In case you did not hear, the Board of Elections is extending hours from September 30 through the election. This will make it even easier for homeless people to vote and register at the same time. Jennifer Brunner settled a tie with the local Board of Election over the early voting hours for Cuyahoga County. We now have seven days to vote and register to vote or change your address at the main office of the Board of Elections (2925 Euclid Ave. --right on the new Silverline RTA).

Basically, September 30-October 3 and Monday October 6, the Board is open from 8:30 a.m. to 7 p.m.

They are open Saturday October 4 from 9 am-1p.m.

They are also open Saturday October 5 from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m.

Please help spread the word. This seven day period is the golden opportunity for very low income and homeless people to participate in the democratic process. There will be no need to try to send mail to people without addresses or worries that a change of address application was not received or that the Board got the individual's mail back when they tried to contact them. This is the second major election with this window in which you can do both vote and register at the same time. After October 6, you will need to be registered in order to vote early.

We are having a training on Saturday September 27 at 11:30 a.m. at the Coalition offices (3631 Perkins Ave. third floor) to be ready for the upcoming week. If you have anytime to volunteer, we need your help. Please call Josh at 216/432-0540 if you want to attend or for more information. **Thank you for the correction**
