Did you know? Many individuals who are detained in jails do retain the right to vote. In Ohio, only those in jail or prison following a felony conviction lose the right to vote. But while those awaiting trial can still cast a ballot, few are able to do so because officials do not have voting programs in place. Join All Voting is Local and the ACLU of Ohio for a training to learn how you can help register voters currently detained in Ohio’s jails.  At this training you will learn:  What are jails – who is in them and who runs them; How to help voters register and request an absentee ballot; and, How to build an effective volunteer team.  Refreshments Provided.  Location:  Columbus Metropolitan Library – Northern Lights Branch, 4093 Cleveland Ave., Columbus 43224.  Register here.
