Primary 2004

The fight to restore Ohioans' right to self-defense was not an easy one. Many important provisions were left out, and many more harmful provisions were inserted, in order to get a law. With your contributions and support, we will be able to ensure that future Ohio legislatures protect and improve upon Ohio's new concealed carry law.

For the Ohio primary election, you may vote a Republican, a Democrat, or a non-partisan ballot. You must choose which party’s elections you want to vote in – you can not vote in both. We have grouped the tables in the voter guide by party to assist you.
