Election 2020: November 3, 2020

Now is the time for the manufacturing community’s voice to be heard.

The results from this year’s election will play a significant role in determining the business climate in Ohio – and the rest of the nation – for years to come. At stake is control of the White House, the U.S. Senate and House, the Ohio House and Senate, and Ohio’s judicial branch.

To prepare for these important elections, The Ohio Manufacturers’ Association has produced Ohio-specific voter resources. This is where you can find the tools you need to vote – whether early, absentee, or in person. Also available is information about state and federal candidates, OMA policy priorities, and more. Share these resources widely.
