Subodh Chandra, leads his triplet sons and voters to the Cuyahoga County Board of Elections in the nonpartisan, nonprofit Vote Early, Vote Big! program that Chandra founded and chaired.
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.
