7 Days Until Ohio Referendum on Reproductive Rights! Activists' List and Calendar

(Please let me know if there are any broken links or incorrect or incomplete information) (Thanks to RandySF for the info)

Note: many of these events are “virtual,” so anyone in the USA (or even beyond) can participate!

What’s at stake:

Voters in the Buckeye State will decide whether to enshrine abortion protections into the state constitution (via “Issue 1”) or be the first to reject an abortion-rights measure since the Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade.

Anti-abortion groups are banking on Ohio to end the movement’s run of state-level losses and create a blueprint for battles in 2024 and beyond.

PROTECT REPRO RIGHTS – VOTE YES ON ISSUE 1 PHONE BANK!
https://ohioansunitedforreproductiverights.win/event/protect-repro-rights-vote-yes-on-issue-1-phone-bank/2023-11-06/

Tuesday, November 7, 2023:
Election Day
Vote in person at your usual polling place between 6:30 a.m. and 7:30 p.m.
To find your polling location:
https://ohiosos.gov/elections/voters/toolkit/polling-location/

If you decide to vote in person, make sure you have one of the acceptable forms of ID required to vote.
Per Ms. Toad:
Voter ID rules have changed in Ohio. A photo ID is required for voting in person at the polls either ahead of the election or on election day (unexpired driver's license, unexpired passport - or other US/State issued ID, US Military ID). In the past a photo ID was not needed - and in the past passports did not qualify as ID.
• Acceptable forms of ID
◦ An Ohio driver license
◦ An Ohio state ID card (Additional links and information in the Free State IDs section below)
◦ An interim identification form issued by the Bureau of Motor Vehicles
◦ A U.S. passport or passport card
◦ A U.S. military ID card, Ohio National Guard ID card, or U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs ID card (that includes the voter’s name and photograph)
◦ [College students] If you don’t have a valid Ohio photo ID, you can vote-by-mail using the last four digits of your Social Security Number as identification.
• No longer acceptable
◦ Current utility bill, bank statement, government check; paycheck, other government document, and concealed carry permit.
Some additional information, courtesy Ms. Toad:
If you know/run into someone while canvassing who says they don't have a photo ID, they can still vote - but it is more of a hassle. It will have to be by paper (not in person) absentee ballot. If they request an absentee ballot and postmark it/drop it in the absentee ballot box at the board of elections they can vote using only the last 4 digits of their social security number.
