The 2014 Voters Guide is out (in English and Spanish!). We also have links to a number of candidate interview videos, made by DATV and MVCC Cable. Check them out on our Election Information page, and share them with your friends and neighbors.
At the request of the Ohio Secretary of State and Attorney General, the U.S. Supreme Court has blocked expanded early voting opportunities pending consideration of an appeal of the recent Federal judge's ruling that had restored them. This means that we will go back to having early voting start on 7 October, not 30 September, with no golden week, no evenings, and only one Sunday (Nov. 2). Black, low-income, and homeless voters are most likely to be affected by the ruling, since voting records indicate these groups are most likely to take advantage of these evening and weekend hours. See the SCOTUSBlog for more details about this development.
About our League
The League of Women Voters of the Greater Dayton Area (LWVGDA) is one of the first Leagues established in 1920 after passage of the 19th amendment, making it a proud and direct descendent of the women’s suffrage movement. Over 250 members strong, LWVGDA encompasses both Montgomery and Greene Counties, and is an active partner of the State of Ohio League and the League of Women Voters U.S. The League is nonpartisan, and neither supports nor opposes any political party or candidate, but does take action on issues following careful study and member consensus. All women and men eligible to vote are invited to join League. It’s not just about having the right to vote, it’s about what we do with it.
