Resources to Prepare for the Ohio Supreme Court Elections

We are at a critical point right now where state supreme courts are more important than ever. We have the power to shape our Supreme Court if we vote. There are three races for seats on the Ohio Supreme Court this year.

The 2024 General Election Day is Tuesday, November 5. Ohioans, you must be registered to vote by October 7, and early in-person voting starts October 8.

The Ohio Supreme Court wields enormous power, yet it isn’t always obvious how to get to know the judicial candidates who may ultimately carry out this responsibility. Voters need to know whether a candidate will be fair, impartial, and independent in their administration of justice. Where other candidates for office can make campaign promises, judicial candidates cannot. 

Other resources that can help:

  • Judicialvotescount.org is a voter guide hosted by the Ohio State Bar Association where Ohio voters can read what candidates say about themselves. 
  • Keep an eye on upcoming debates and forums. This is an opportunity to hear directly from the candidates for the Ohio Supreme Court.
