It All Starts With Conversation.

OSC is encouraging people to host Ballot Parties, or interactive conversations where participants review and discuss their local, state, and federal ballot initiatives and candidates.

Nonpartisan and inclusive resources and facilitation tools are provided, so anyone can host or participate.
