More information about the Ohio Votes initiative
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, homeless programs, and other nonprofits to help the people they serve exercise their right to vote and stay engaged in the civic debate.
Through voter education, leadership training, empowerment programming, coalition building, and providing voting resources including rides to the polls, Ohio VOTES activates Ohio voters who often go ignored by traditional political campaigning. By engaging them on issues that matter most to their own community and providing tools and resources, Ohio VOTES empowers residents and low-income communities to be their own advocates.
