Voting Rights Forum with Jennifer Brunner

You are invited to a voting rights forum and lobby day with keynote speaker Secretary of State Jennifer Brunner!

Sign up today to attend!

Hear from election reform experts on what changes should be made to Ohio's Electoral System. Discussion topics include: voting systems, disability access, voter ID laws, deceptive practices, and public agency registration.

Jennifer Brunner will speak about the progress being made by her office, and what work lies ahead.

You will also receive a thorough lobbying training that will prepare you to discuss voting rights with your local state legislator. Legislators will attend during the afternoon, and will be available to meet with you.

You will be part of a long term strategy to bring electoral reform to Ohio by:

  • Making Ohio's no-excuse absentee voting law permanent
  • Fixing how we purge voters from the state wide voter file
  • Getting public agencies to comply with current laws to register new voters
  • Fixing provisional voting rules
  • Passing a "Deceptive Practices" bill will that criminalizes activity that intentionally misleads voters about the date, time and place of voting
