Celebrating voting rights through the Vote Early, Vote Big! program

The Vote Early, Vote Big! program in Cuyahoga County, founded and chaired by Subodh Chandra, resulted in one of the highest minority-vote turnouts in Ohio history.

The program inspired minority and poor voters in Northeast Ohio to vote early in the open election process during the weeks before Election Day, collectively, and in large numbers. The biggest turnouts were on Sundays, with the program organizing buses of worshipers from African-American churches to come downtown and vote after services.

In his remarks to the group at the reception, he noted the importance of sharing the experience of voting with the next generation.
