Greetings from the Buckeye State where I’m on the ground in my hometown of Cleveland mobilizing HRC members in support of Hillary Clinton.
There’s an estimated 323,500 LGBTQ voters in Ohio — compare that to Obama’s margin of victory in 2012 (166,300 votes), and the power of the LGBTQ vote is undeniable.
Right now, the campaign is focused on getting people to the polls early – a very important strategy (as President Obama reminded us all earlier this week in this video). Early voting was key to President Obama’s victory in Ohio in 2012. More than a quarter of the votes cast in Ohio that year were made before election day in the state’s three largest counties — Cuyahoga, Franklin, and Hamilton.
Now with less than three weeks left until Election Day, every moment counts! If you’re in the Cleveland area and want to help #turnOUT the vote, sign up here.
The deadline for voter registration in Ohio was Tuesday, October 11th. Confirm your voter registration status online.
