2018 General Election Endorsements

2018 General Election Endorsements


Ohio Explored is proud to release our 2018 General Election Endorsements for the upcoming election on November 6, 2018. With so much at stake in our world, it is imperative that all Ohioans vote. Make your voice heard. We have thoughtfully considered each issue and candidate for the 2018 General Election. Below is our list of endorsements.


Why We Are Voting Yes on Issue 1:

  • If passed, this amendment will:

    • Force our government to invest money towards addiction recovery instead of incarcerating people convicted of non-violent drug crimes

    • Encourage inmates to participate in rehabilitation and educational programs

    • Save Taxpayer Dollars by reducing the amount of people in state prison for low-level crimes

    • Punish drug dealers not addicts by mandating that drug possession and drug use be considered a misdemeanor, not a felony

  • Clean Water

  • Living Wage

    • Will work to make sure all Ohioans have access to jobs that supply them with a living wage

  • Medical Care for All

    • Will work to give all Ohioans equal access to medical care at an affordable rate

  • Environmental Protections

    • Will continue to fight for environmental protections in Ohio

  • Social Justice

    • Supports gay marriage

    • Will work to decriminalize marijuana

    • Wants to reform Ohio’s prison system

  • No Corporate Donations

    • Campaign only takes donations from citizens not corporations

  • Unequal Media Coverage + Debate Time

    • Constance Gadell-Newton (Green) and candidate Travis M. Irvine (Libertarian) were left out of this year’s gubernatorial debates which limits voters from learning about the breadth of their options and their platforms

    • Unfair coverage excluded the only female gubernatorial candidate in this year’s race causing us to further question the reasoning behind the exclusion
