Ohio Pro Gun Voter Guide 2024 Primary

2024 BFA-PAC Grades and Endorsements for the Ohio Primary

Back to Main Voter Guide Page

For the 2024 Primary Election, BFA-PAC is focusing primarily on federal legislative candidates (U.S. Senate and U.S. House), Ohio legislative candidates (Ohio Senate and Ohio House) and select judicial candidates (Ohio Supreme Court and District Courts of Appeal).

NOTES:

  • The following grades and endorsements are not yet complete. We will continue to update this voter guide as we collect additional information.
  • ? generally means the candidate did not submit a survey and/or we do not yet have sufficient information to issue a grade.
  • "q" after a grade means we are basing the grade primarily on answers to our candidate survey, not on votes or other information.
  • In some races where there are multiple good candidates, we choose to not endorse in a primary.

Please help spread the word and encourage your friends and family to vote their gun rights freedoms first!

DATES:

  • Feb. 2 - Military and overseas absentee voting begins
  • Feb. 21 - Early in-person and mail-in voting begins
  • March 19 - Primary Election Day
