We have waded through uncharted territory this past week, but I believe Ohioans are resilient enough to get through this together. Governor DeWine has been a great leader for us in the midst of the COVID-19 outbreak, and his proactive measures are sure to be a great help to curbing the spread of the virus. Governor DeWine has put the health and safety of all Ohioans first and his administration is leading by example to keep our communities safe.
On Friday night, Governor DeWine went on Tucker Carlson
to discuss the proactive steps his administration is taking to keep Ohioans safe. I can promise this to all Ohio families: Governor DeWine will not rest until our community is safe from COVID-19.
With Election Day only two days away, we are encouraging every Ohioan to fulfill their civic duty by going to vote. If you registered for an absentee ballot, you have until tomorrow, March 16th, to mail it in. You can also deliver your absentee ballot in-person to your county board of elections before the close of polls at 7:30pm on Election Day. If you are planning tovote in-person
, you can do so on Monday and Tuesday. We urge those voting in-person to choose non peak hours if possible in order to help practice the social distancing that both Governor DeWine and Dr. Amy Acton spoke of. Lastly, Ohio needs more poll workers. There are some people who are no longer able to fulfill their duty due to the risks associated with underlying medical conditions. We are calling on those who are healthy and able to please consider becoming a poll worker
We must remain vigilant and proactive to combat this crisis. For more information, please visit:
