Ohio Democratic Party Marks National Voter Registration Day, Urges Ohioans to Register to Vote

Columbus, OH — Today, Ohio Democratic Party Chair Elizabeth Walters released the following statement to mark National Voter Registration Day. With so much at stake in upcoming elections — from the economy to infrastructure to healthcare — Ohio Democrats are urging eligible voters to exercise their fundamental right to vote, build on the progress that’s been made for working families in our state, and assure their voice is heard.

“Today, we’re encouraging Ohioans to visit IWillVote.com and make sure they’re registered to vote. Every Ohioan deserves to have their voice heard through the ballot box in elections ranging from their local school board to their president. With their vote, Ohioans can fight for fair districts, better wages and an economy that works for all of us. Ohio Democrats know democracy is at its strongest when it includes all of us and every vote is counted,” said Chair Walters.

Ohio Democrats are working nonstop to register voters on this holiday and every day, as we work to engage voters in every community throughout the state. According to 2020 U.S. Census data, as many as one in four eligible Americans are not registered to vote. This week the Ohio Democratic Party will encourage Ohioans to:

  • Check their registration state and urge their family, friends and neighbors to do the same. 

  • Use #NationalVoterRegistrationDay! And #VoteReady on social media to encourage Ohioans to register to vote.  

Ohioans can visit IWillVote.com to easily check registration status and learn about the voting process in Ohio.

First observed in 2012, National Voter Registration Day aims to create awareness of voter registration opportunities in Ohio and beyond. To date, nearly 4.5 million voters have registered to vote on the holiday alone.
