Young Dem Candidates

OYD members across the state support young candidates as they run for office at virtually every level. We’re incredibly honored to support these YD candidates and encourage Ohioans to cast their ballots for these talented individuals.  In 2017, so that our members can get to know the candidates better, we’ll be conducting Q&A interviews with each of them.

The following OYD endorsed candidates have competitive primary elections on Tuesday, May 2, 2017.  If you live in their respective jurisdictions make sure to vote for them!  We will post links to the candidate Q&As on this page as they are completed - so check back for more.
