Equitable Voter Access: The Long Road to Access – Are We There Yet?

Real Talk
Monday, September 21, 2020 - 7:00pm to 8:30pm

Join LWV Ohio for a 2-part panel discussion examining Ohio’s election system and its impact on voter access – what are the access points, where are the barriers, and how do Ohioans ensure their vote is counted. 

Hosted by League of Women Voters of Ohio in partnership with: Ohio Voter Rights Coalition, Common Cause, All Voting Is Local, A. Philip Randolph Institute, OhioVotes, and Coalition on Homelessness and Housing in Ohio.
