Ohio VOTES Voter Engagement Program 2018

Ohio VOTES is COHHIO’s year-round, statewide, nonpartisan initiative to build civic engagement in Ohio’s low income communities. Ohio VOTES works with housing providers, health centers, community centers, food pantries, and homeless programs and other nonprofits to help the people they serve exercise their right to vote and stay engaged in the civic debate.


To find out how you can volunteer, get training on voter registration, or sign up as an agency partner contact Ohio VOTES Coordinator Maria Bruno at 614-280-1984 (ext. 121) or email her at mariabruno@cohhio.org.

Voter Engagement Training for Nonprofit Organizations

Ohio VOTES will be offering online and in-person trainings for nonprofit agency staff on how to register voters and encourage civic engagement. A webinar is tentatively scheduled for July 25. Check the COHHIO calendar for details and other upcoming training opportunities.
