Protecting Democracy in Ohio
Common Cause Ohio is committed to protecting and improving voters' rights and access to the ballot in Ohio and improving transparency and accountability in government. Read about our top three priorities.
Putting Power Back in the Hands of Ohioans.
Common Cause Ohio is a non-profit, non-partisan advocacy organization that works to strengthen public participation in our democracy and ensure that public officials and public institutions are accountable and responsive to citizens. Through a powerful combination of coalition building, lobbying and litigation, grassroots organizing, policy development, research and public education, we spotlight local, state and national issues that affect every Ohioan.
In 2024, Common Cause Ohio is working through the Fair Districts Ohio Coalition and supporting the Citizens Not Politicians ballot initiative to establish an independent citizens redistricting commission.
