Reconstructing
Dayton

We are an organization dedicated to and in support of practical, common-sense solutions for Montgomery County and the Greater Dayton area. We believe Montgomery county issues are Dayton issues and vice-versa and that issues can only be solved through close collaboration across the region.

Our solutions are non-partisan and seek to find common ground on both sides. Any candidate who makes producing results their priority over party or political careerism is an automatic ally of Reconstructing Dayton.

It's time to change elections in Dayton.

Reconstructing Dayton is working to improve the efficiency and fairness of our local elections, and want your help. Learn more about our petition and what you can do to play a part.

Election Reform

Ranked-choice voting brings compromise, efficiency, and fairness to elections. We support election reforms that reduce partisanship and empower voters. Read more…
