Week of October 26th Round-Up

Ohio's Early Childhood Election Update

On Election Day, Ohioans had the opportunity to elect policymakers at the local, county, state, and federal levels. This election was historic as over 5.8 million votes have been counted, making this election the highest turnout in state history! While the results of the presidential election are still up in the air as many states continue to count their ballots, President Trump won all of Ohio's 18 electoral votes.

Congratulations to all of Ohio's new and returning policymakers! We are looking forward to working with you in the coming months and years to advance more equitable outcomes for pregnant women, infants, toddlers, and their families in our great state.
