As Ohio reaches the climax of "Golden Week" - the seven day window when Ohioans can register AND vote at the same time - here are a few photos that give a flavor of our activities on the ground.
Vote Today Ohio volunteers were on the scene when the one and only Bruce Springsteen played a special acoustic concert at Ohio State University in Columbus yesterday. In addition to being treated to some of the best of The Boss song catalog, an enthusiastic crowd was called to action: "I want my America back. We need our America back." The Boss movingly implored Ohioans to grab hold of the early voting advantage. With nudging like that, the VTO crew was able to handily sign up dozens of people for rides to the voting center.
Energetic Vote Today Ohio teams have been moving University of Cincinnati students and staff to early voting centers all week. Hundreds have hopped into the VTO vans to make early voting even easier.
In collaboration with the Hip Hop Caucus, VTO teams in Cincinnati hosted "Shout out the Early Vote" on October 3rd - a hip hop and spoken word event in appreciation of early voters. Local artists laid down words and beats for an enthusiastic room at Baba Budan's.
