The Home Stretch

7 mins read

The Ohio Scoop is your weekly campaign fix, filled with the most up-to-date information about Ohio Democrats and everything happening on the campaign trail here in Ohio. We’re here so you can get your political scoop, all in one place.

If you’re new to the list, welcome. You were added because you are one of Ohio Democrats’ best supporters. For those of you who are returning, welcome back.

We had a busy week on the campaign trail, so let’s jump right in.

It’s Time to VOTE!

Election Day is TOMORROW. So many of our rights are on the line and control of the U.S. Senate could come down to Ohio. 

Have you voted yet? 

You can still vote early in-person tomorrow, Monday, November 7th or on Election Day on November 8th. Make your plan to vote early in-person or on election day at ohiodems.org/vote

If you or someone you know is experiencing any issues related to voting, please reach out to our Voter Assistance Hotline at 844-OH-I-VOTE.

Sample Ballot

We have hyper-competitive elections up and down the ballot. It’s clear this election will come down to a field margin. Let’s work together to bring this home and turn out our voters.

Help us get the word out about a critical resource to help Ohioans vote all the way down the ballot:

  • You can find a sample ballot for all 88 counties at https://ohiodems.org/ballot/ or Text VOTE to 71736 to get a link on your phone that takes you to this website.
  • We encourage you to save this on your phone and take it into the ballot box with you. Or, you can use it to complete your mail-in ballot.

It’s the Final GOTV Weekend

It is our final GOTV weekend and Ohio Democrats spent Saturday and Sunday knocking over 100,0000 doors all across the state. And we’re not done yet. 

We will be knocking doors all day on Monday AND Tuesday. Will you join us in knocking a packet? Sign up and encourage your friends and family to knock packets here.

If there is nothing in your neighborhood, contact Melissa at mgoldberg@ohiodems.org and we will get you set up with options to contact voters close to home.

Coming to a Town Near You

For the last two weeks, Tim Ryan has been holding a series of rallies in every corner of the state. Luckily, there is still time to catch Tim at his final few rallies before Election Day.

Ohio Against the World (of podcasts)

Campaign HQ with David Plouffe

David Plouffe, former campaign manager for Barack Obama, released a podcast today featuring Anna Staver of USA Today Network’s Ohio Bureau and Dave Chase, Tim Ryan’s Campaign Manager.

The episode touches on our 3 competitive congressional races, Greg Landsman in OH-1, Emilia Sykes in OH-13, and Marcy Kaptur in OH-14, as well as Tim Ryan’s Path to victory. 

Listen to Thursday’s episode of Campaign HQ with David Plouffe titled “Ohio” on Spotify or wherever you find your podcasts.

Redistricting Madness

Friday’s episode of This American Life took a deep dive into the bizarre and frustrating redistricting process in Ohio. It highlighted the 2018 constitutional amendment to end gerrymandering in the state–one of the first of its kind.

Yet, as we all know, Ohio Republicans drew electoral maps that violated their very own constitutional amendment, and those are the ones that we are all voting on in this year’s midterm elections.

If you need something to fire yourself up even more before Tuesday, listen to the episode here.

If you have relatives in other states like me, they don’t understand just how corrupt our statewide government is in Ohio. And sometimes it’s hard to truly explain how bad it is. 

Election Night

Please join us at one of the election night parties listed below. We’re looking forward to watching returns with you, your family, and friends. 

Thank You

From the bottom of our hearts, thank you for your continued support and partnership this cycle. None of our work would be possible without you. In a year where people across the country counted Ohio out, your generous donations allowed us to build the largest grassroots, field operation in the country. Thank you!

Until Next Time

Election Day is this Tuesday. 

It is the time to Get Out the Vote. We have 2 more days to turn out voters on the ground in every corner of the state. There are doors to knock, calls to make and absentee voters to chase. To do this, we need your help and we need it now. Please consider contributing as much as you can to help Ohio Democrats turn out as many of our voters as we can.

If you’re unsure about how much more you can contribute, simply reply to this email. We’d be happy to help. 

As always, thank you for standing with us. I am immensely grateful for your partnership.
