Participate in Citizenship You must be a registered voter to vote or to circulate ballot access petitions. Telephone the Board of Elections to find out if you are registered to vote 632-7001. Request a voter registration card be mailed to you if you are registered. If not, update your voter registration and your card will be mailed to you. Your card shows your representative district numbers and precinct number, for use in your political participation. This is an important, necessary first step to become politically proactive. We will check your "card" status at the door. No card yet? We will still enthusiastically welcome your participation.
Are You Registered to Vote? Call 632-7001 or 632-7000, ext 1 to register.

Meet Nonpartisan Candidates: We will always have at least one nonpartisan grassroots candidate at each meeting. A three minute speech, then questions for each candidate. The above link shows all known populist nonpartisan and minor party candidates on Hamilton County ballots for local, state, and national public offices. Candidate web pages and petition status are also shown.


1st IVA Priority: Certify Petition Circulators IVA success depends upon our ability to put large numbers of petition circulators in the field to easily collect the valid petition signatures needed for all ballot access petitions in circulation. This is a major way our participation leads to power over the political process. The higher our number of certified petition circulators the easier each petition will be for each IVA petition circulator.

Work Session: In around one hour we can all learn the rules needed to gather valid petition signatures in Ohio. Each of us can assemble a personal petition kit and learn to use it in the field. Once certified, trained petition circulators can choose to put candidates on the ballot, to put minor political parties on the ballot, and to put Initiative and Referendum (I & R) issues on the ballot. Ballot access petitions are the most powerful tools any citizen has for direct participation in political change, for needed political and election reforms in Ohio.

Ohio Cooperative Party Ballot Access Numbers: Ten valid signatures from 5,000 petition circulators (50,000 valid signatures) are more than the number of valid petition signatures needed to give any minor party ballot access under Ohio law. With 100,000 certified petition circulators one or two valid signatures at most are needed from each circulator for any Ohio petition. Valid signatures from a spouse and a neighbor can put any candidate, minor party, or issue on the ballot. With 100,000 certified petition circulators we can easily reform our Ohio political system. With as few as five thousand certified petition circulators across the state of Ohio we can accomplish ballot access miracles.

Continuous Cooperative Ballot Access: Twenty signatures every two years from 5,000+ OHIVA petition circulators (100,000+ signatures) from friends, neighbors, and family will certify OHIVA ballot access for all future elections. Every legislative candidate using OHIVA ballot access will need just 25 valid signatures, not 1000s, for ballot access. Statewide candidates will need just 1000, not 5000 valid signatures. With ballot access assured, nonpartisan candidates can successfully compete with the bipartisan monopoly.

Each state requires different numbers. (Top of Page) (Numbers) (Your Voice)
