Lorain County Rising is actively working with the League of Women Voters of the Oberlin Area and Ohio progressive leaders on these primary initiatives in support of the 2018 primary election in May and general election in November:
- Voter registration
- Redistricting reform (Issue 1 on the ballot in May) and Fair Districts signature-gathering
- Voter engagement and participation through postcard parties and calls to Members of Congress
- Fundraising for local and State candidates
According to the new website, “Fair Congressional Districts for Ohio is a broad coalition of good-government groups that is working to pass an amendment to the Ohio constitution to reform our procedures and criteria for drawing new congressional district boundaries following each decennial census.” We need 600,000 signatures to get the amendment on the ballot for 2018. Sign up to volunteer to collect signatures for congressional redistricting reform!
