 Dear friends -

Only a few weeks remain before the Ohio Voter Bill of Rights Coalition ( including the Ohio Democratic Party, the Ohio AFL-CIO, the Ohio Legislative Black Caucus and progressive allies) must submit 365,000 signatures of registered voters to Secretary of State Jon Husted to place the Voter Bill of Rights Amendment on the November ballot. If this measure is on the ballot , it will be a major blow to the GOP attempt to suppress voting by workers,students and minorities and will boost Democratic turnout in this year's critical election. Here is a list of upcoming events where petitions will be circulated:

Weds June 11, 18 and 25: Wade Oval Wednesdays, 6-8:30
Thurs, June 12,19 and 26: Edgewater Beach Happy Hour events and concerts, 5:30-8:30
Fri, June 13, 20 and 27: Euclid Beach concerts, 6-8

In addition,

Thurs, June 19-Sat, June21 Middleburg Hts. Summer in the City
Thurs, June 26-Sat, June 28 Fairview Park Summerfest
Fri, June 27-Sun, June 29 Brecksville Homedays
Sat, June 28 Pride Fest Voinovich Park all day

Please pick up a petition at the Cuyahoga Democratic Party office (1466 St. Clair) if you don't have one and join this important drive to preserve a fundamental democratic right.

In Solidarity,
