Columbus – Concerned Veterans for America (CVA) Ohio state chapter is working to mobilize the thousands of Ohio veterans and military family members to vote this November 8th in an effort called “GOTVets.”
The group’s Ohio chapter has 13 staffers and close to 500 active volunteers in the state who aim to make 310,000 calls and knock 47,000 doors asking people to get out and vote on Election Day. CVA Ohio is also directing veterans in the state to online resources such as CVA’s civic action center, helping veterans register to vote and locate polling locations.
There are 22 million veterans in the United States. CVA is active in 16 states across the country, using an “army” of over 2,500 volunteers to knock on doors and make phone calls for freedom. The group aims to make over 1.5 million contacts by November 8th, having already made almost 650,000 calls and knocked on 27,000 doors nationwide.
