Ohio is a swing state and the presidential election energizes voters. Invariably, there will be problems at the polls on Election Day. Our best method for quickly identifying and solving those problems is having poll monitors stationed outside polling places to be our eyes and ears on the ground. We are recruiting poll monitors to assist voters at targeted polling locations for the November Election. Learn More ›
Common Cause Ohio believes that the most fundamental right granted to a citizen in our representative democracy is the right to vote and to have that vote counted. While it has been more than 10 years since the very long lines of Election 2004, Ohio voters continues to face challenges.
All citizens should have equal opportunity to register and vote for candidates of their choice. Lack of information about how the voting process works, is often cited as a primary reason for not voting. It’s understandable that voters feel this way because Ohio’s election rules seem to be constantly under revision or subject to litigation. Common Cause Ohio monitors proposed changes at the Statehouse, advocates for increased access to the polls and works to educate voters.
