"As Ohio Goes, So Goes the Nation" says presidential election conventional wisdom.  Yes, we are lucky in Ohio: a swing state year in and year out, and the rich presidential history to go along with it.

The history doesn't stop with Ohio's proud history of sending native sons to the White House.  We have a rich tradition of colorful officeholders and candidates for Governor, Senator, Congress and local races. Celebrating that political history is the purpose of this website.  

This site simply extends that celebration as at least two handbooks on collecting Ohio political memorabilia precede it. There's also an Ohio Political Almanac published by long time journalists.  And there's a website that serves as a vital resource for election results published by Mike Dawson. 

Therefore, what we're attempting here, is to bring these elements together - the people, the elections and the materials that accompany those elections. It's a slow go, but we're often adding new information so check back often.
