Continuing the Fight for Voting Rights: Events Today!

7 mins read



Over the weekend Donald Trump was slammed for his lies about saving the American auto industry (he didn’t) and new auto plants being built in Ohio (they aren’t).


“Donald Trump thinks he can play Ohioans for fools,” said Ohio Democratic Party Chairman David Pepper. “The last time he parachuted into northwest Ohio, he promised that our future ‘never ever looked brighter.’ Eight months later, thousands of Ohioans have lost their lives to COVID-19, working families are picking up the pieces of a shattered economy and Trump’s incompetence is only making things worse. Ohioans don’t need a revolving door of empty promises, we need leadership that delivers — that’s Joe Biden and Kamala Harris.

“Massive numbers of Ohio Democrats are already requesting mail-in ballots, and soon Ohioans will start in-person early voting. Whatever Trump says on Monday, we’re ready to put an end to his chaos and send Joe Biden to the White House.”



Victory on Dropboxes Delayed by Frank LaRose

This week the Ohio Democratic Party won a legal victory in the fight to allow county boards of elections to install multiple secure dropboxes for the return of vote-by-mail ballots.

“We are pleased the court agreed with our argument that nothing in Ohio law prohibits the installation of multiple dropboxes in a county,” said Ohio Democratic Party Chairman David Pepper. “The secretary of state’s directive banning multiple dropboxes is arbitrary and unreasonable, especially during a global pandemic when many more Ohioans want — and need — options for delivering their absentee ballots. It’s time for Frank LaRose to stop with the theatrics and stalling tactics and let county boards of elections make it more convenient for Ohioans to vote.”


Sen. Sherrod Brown, Congresswoman Joyce Beatty, Congresswoman Marcy Kaptur, Congresswoman Marcia Fudge and Congressman Tim Ryan sent a letter to Ohio Secretary of State Frank LaRose urging him to comply with the court’s ruling.

“Time and again, failures to use your authority to make it easier for people to vote have put Ohioans at risk, including your refusal to prepay postage on ballots or allow multiple drop boxes in each county. It is your responsibility to exercise your authority to make it easier for Ohioans to vote safely. That is why we urge you to follow the Franklin County Common Pleas Court ruling and not waste taxpayer resources in mounting an appeal,” wrote the lawmakers.


Cuyahoga County Democratic Party Chairwoman and Cuyahoga County Councilwoman Shontel Brown called out LaRose’s “very intentional actions to make voting harder for some of our most vulnerable voters in our county.”
