Election Day Is Tuesday; What You Need To Know

4 Nov , 2017  

Ohio Secretary of State Jon Husted is reminding voters there is still time to vote in the November 7 General Election. By the time polls close on Tuesday, Ohio voters will have had four weeks to cast their ballots during the early voting period that began on October 11.

Absentee Voters

The deadline to request an absentee ballot for the General Election is TOMORROW, Saturday, November 4 at noon. Completed absentee ballots being returned by mail must be postmarked by Monday, November 6 and arrive at your board of elections within 10 days of the election in order to be counted. Voters who have not yet mailed their ballot are encouraged to drop it off in-person at their county board of elections prior to the polls closing at 7:30pm on November 7. A completed ballot may also be returned by a family member.

The State has also established uniform hours for in-person absentee voting to ensure all voters have fair and equal access to the ballot during the November 7 General Election. Early, in-person voting hours are available through the weekend and on Monday.

For more information, the Ohio Secretary of State’s office offers a full, detailed and interactive 2017 elections calendar, along with a detailed voting schedule.
