Early Voting Has Begun! Exercise Your Rights!
MAKE A DIFFERENCE! We are asking for volunteers who want to make a huge difference by volunteering to collect signatures for the Ohio Cannabis Rights Amendment at their county's early voting location. The signatures collected there will be high value due to the fact that the vast majority of folks who sign will be registered voters and all will be from the same county making the job significantly easier. Anybody who is able to participate please contact John Pardee at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please type in EARLY VOTING VOLUNTEER in the subject line and make sure to include the county you wish to work and your contact phone number. Rural volunteers are encouraged to work in their closest larger metropolitan areas where traffic at the polling sites will be the highest. Sign up today. Let's get this done Ohio!

Thirty Ohio Counties Have Their Minimum Signatures
Petition counts confirm that thirty Ohio counties have met their 5% signature minimums as part of the 44-county requirement for placing the Ohio Cannabis Rights Amendment on the ballot.
The procedures for ballot placement of a constitutional amendment mandate that signat
ures are to be obtained from at least 44 of Ohio's 88 counties, and that the signatures in each of these 44 counties must equal at least 5 percent of the total vote cast for the office of governor in that county at the last gubernatorial election, which in the OCRA's case was 2010.
The map shows the minimum signatures needed in each Ohio county. County-based signature gathering for the Ohio Cannabis Rights Amendment is led by County Captains. If you are interested in gathering signatures or leading a county, please visit our Volunteer page, select your county, fill out the form and hit submit. Someone will be in touch. Keep up the great work, Ohio!
