LGBTQIA community, allies launch Come Out to Vote campaign

Local News

Members of the LGBTQIA community and its allies are joining forces to get people to vote early. 

Come out to vote is more than just a play on words. It’s about getting members of the LGBTQIA community to have their voices heard.  

Members of the Come out to Vote coalition said this is a statewide effort that is headquartered in Columbus.

Michael Smithson, a coalition organizer, said he wanted this event to occur on National Coming Out Day.  

“As a minority community, we have over 1.3 million LGBT voters nationwide. That vote can really make a difference,” Smithson said.

Organizers are considering doing this again next year.
