Tuesday, April 28 is the final day of Ohio’s vote-by-mail primary.
While there will be no in-person voting for most Ohioans, voters who have not yet voted can still vote by mail.
Ballots already submitted by mail or early in-person before March 17 will still count.
Vote-by-mail ballot requests must be submitted by April 25. Voted ballots must be postmarked by Monday, April 27. The tabulation of votes will begin on April 28 after 7:30 p.m. Because ballots postmarked by April 27 will all be counted, results likely won’t be available until May 8.
Limited in-person voting will occur between 6:30 a.m. and 7:30 p.m. on April 28 at the board of elections office. This option is strictly for individuals with disabilities who require in-person voting and those who do not have a home mailing address.
Voters can also write and mail a letter to their county’s Board of Elections. They must include their name, address, address to send the ballot to if different from home address, telephone number, birth date, Ohio driver’s license number or the last four digits of Social Security number, current election, party affiliation (Democratic, Republican or Non-Partisan) and a statement that the person is a qualified voter and then the signature of the voter.
Candidates throughout both counties are continuing to get the word out about their campaigns, and we have many contested races featured on this year’s primary ballot. The deadline to register to vote in this election was in February. There’s still time to register to vote in the Nov. 3 General Election: visit VoteOhio.gov.
