Ohio’s Voting Deadline Nears; Here’s How to Get Your Absentee Ballot

The deadline to cast your vote in Ohio’s extended, almost exclusively mail-in primary election is nearly here. Votes will be counted Tuesday, April 28. Ohioans who haven’t yet cast a ballot need to apply for an absentee ballot soon. Voters have three options:

  1. Apply for an absentee ballot by printing an application form available online, or have one sent to you;
  2. Call your county elections board to request a ballot; or
  3. Make your own vote-by-mail ballot request.

Remember, if you voted early before the March 17 primary election was canceled, you do not need to do anything.

Requests must be received at the board by noon on Saturday, April 25. Completed ballots must be postmarked by April 27 or submitted directly to a county elections board by 7:30 p.m. April 28. 4/14/2020
