Absentee voting for OH's special election begins Tuesday

Posted: Updated:
COLUMBUS, OH (Press release) -

Secretary of State Jon Husted has announced that Ohioans participating in the Aug. 6 special election may vote absentee starting Tuesday.

Election Ballot Issues

On Aug. 6, voters in 23 counties will decide 29 local issues, including 19 school issues and a handful of local tax levies, bond issues and charter amendments. View the complete list of local issues on the ballot.

In-Person Absentee Voting

In-person absentee voting begins July 2, 35 days before the election. For specific information, including times and locations, contact your board of elections.

Absentee Voting By Mail

Boards of elections will also mail out absentee ballots to voters who have already requested them. All other voters have until Aug. 3 at noon to request an absentee ballot by mail. They may do so by contacting their county board of elections for more information, or by downloading an absentee ballot request form

To cast an absentee ballot by mail, voters must complete, sign and seal their voted ballots, taking care to provide the required information, including proper identification. Voted ballots must be postmarked the day before Election Day and received no later than 10 days after the election, which is Aug. 16. Absentee ballots may also be delivered in person to boards of elections no later than the close of the polls on Election Day. They may not be returned at polling locations.

Check Your Registration

Not sure where to vote or if your voting address is up to date? Voters can now easily check their voter registration information, including voting address and polling location online. The new online service, which previously had to be done using two separate online tools, is part of an ongoing effort by Husted to enhance the service available at MyOhioVote.com. The system is populated with information from county boards of elections.

It is important to note that boards may make a last-minute change to a person's polling place that would not be reflected online, but voters would be notified by mail. Questions about information contained in the online system should be directed to the county boards of elections. 

Register To Vote/Update Your Address

The deadline to register to vote in the Aug. 6 election is July 8, 30 days prior to the election. Voter registration forms are available at MyOhioVote.com or from local boards of elections and other designated agencies, such as libraries and BMVs.

Should voters have moved since the last election, they should also act now to update their voting address online. This should also be done by July 8 to ensure they can vote with ease on Election Day.

Election Day Voting

Polls are open 6:30 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. Election Day. Voters choosing to head to the polls must remember to bring the proper form of ID, plus know their polling place and precinct. Voters can check their polling place and precinct and get other important voting information by visiting MyOhioVote.com.
