In Cleveland’s last local election (2017) for mayor and city council persons, only 2 of every 10 registered voters in Ward 4 turned out to vote. Voter turnout this low is BAD for democracy! Why do we let just a few people who always vote make all the decisions - - even if those decisions don’t benefit all of us?
Reclaim Ward 4’s RECRUIT 4 4 4 (4 Registered Voters for Ward 4) Campaign challenges you to recruit 4 family members or neighbors who are already registered to vote to actually turn out to vote on November 2, 2021.
You can do this! We can make democracy work in Ward 4.

STEP 3: VOTE !
In Ohio, we have 4 weeks to vote each election. As we have learned from the ongoing pandemic, voting early by mail (VBM) or in person will ensure your vote is counted.
VBM: It's easy and those ballots get counted first on election night. You must request a vote by mail ballot. You can return your completed ballot by mail or drop it in the box in the parking lot of the board of elections at 2925 Euclid Avenue, Cleveland.
IN PERSON: Click here for the early voting schedule: https://boe.cuyahogacounty.us/en-us/11032020EarlyInPerson.aspx.
Make sure your family and friends are registered to vote and help them request a ballot to vote by mail OR help them to vote early in person.
