SUCCESS ON ISSUE 1!
Thank you, thank you, thank you to all of our volunteers who worked tirelessly to make Issue 1 a reality. Cuyahoga County was a leader in the state with 82.37% votes in favor. This is democracy at work!
“It took the women’s suffrage movement seventy-two years to secure the right to vote in the US Constitution,” according to Jen Miller, Executive Director of LWVO. “The League of Women Voters was born out of that movement and that persistent, indomitable spirit is what caused us to lead the charge on redistricting reform from the 1980s through [yesterday’s] victory.”
