- About Us
As part of Ohio Valley Goodwill’s 100 year old tradition of helping people to become fully included in their communities, the organization hosted a series of voter education and registration events scheduled for its corporate headquarters as well as satellite locations.
• Tuesday, September 20th- Springfield Pike location
• Wednesday, September 21st- Westwood location
• Thursday, September 22nd- Eastside location
• Tuesday, September 27th- Fairfield location
Participants were provided with a non-partisan overview of the upcoming election; a hands-on demonstration of using a voting machine; view a sample ballot and register to vote if they chose to do so. Ohio Valley Goodwill’s intention is to partner with families and residential providers to ensure that individuals are provided support to get to the correct polling places in order to vote on Election Day, Tuesday, November 8th!
Please note: the deadline to register to vote is Tuesday, October 11. Please note some of the tips about voting provided by Disability Rights Ohio below:
1. Register to Vote!
You can register to vote in person at many public offices, including your local board of elections or library. You can also download a voter registration form online, fill it out, sign it and mail it to your county board of elections.
2. Check your registration.
It is a good idea to check your registration and make sure that the information is correct. Visit Ohio Secretary of State’s My Voter Information website to check your registration.
3. Make sure your address is correct
It is very important that your address be accurate on your registration. If the address listed is not right you will need to update your registration. If you have an Ohio ID, you can update your registration online.
If you do not have an Ohio ID, you can download a form and submit it to your county board of elections.
During Ohio Valley Goodwill’s week-long education and registration efforts, more than 30 new voters were registered for the upcoming election.
