Community Shares and ECO Hamilton County Commissioners Candidate Forum

September 27, 2016 marks “National Voter Registration Day” when groups across the country encourage people to register to vote in time for the general election; the registration deadline for Ohio is October 11, 2016.

Voter registration is even more important than ever, since some voters were “purged” from the voting rolls if they have not voted since the 2008 Presidential Election. This makes it all the more important to ensure people check their voter registration, even if they think they are registered.

Community Shares of Greater Cincinnati and ECO-Environmental Community Organization have teamed up to offer an event to celebrate National Voter Registration Day that will include on-site voter registration, and an opportunity to hear from the candidates for the Hamilton County Commissioner race.

Community Shares represents 23 local non-profit organizations, including ECO, who serve thousands of individuals, all who have a stake in the health and vitality of Hamilton County. The non-profit organizations of Community Shares and the public were offered the opportunity to submit questions. From these submissions, five questions were selected that each candidate will have the opportunity to answer. The event will include a moderated Q&A session from questions from the audience. There will be time for meet and greet, and a voter registration station will be available hosted by the League of Women Voters for the public to register to vote, and to check their voter registration.

The event is expected to draw a large crowd. All local candidates for public office are welcome to attend, and a table will be available for campaign literature.
