Ohio Primary Election Is Vote-By-Mail Through April 28

The Ohio General Assembly has determined that Ohio will complete the 2020 primary election on April 28, 2020. The election will be largely completed by mail, with limited in-person voting on April 28 for the disabled and those without a home mailing address. Visit VoteOhio.gov to learn how to request a Vote-by-Mail ballot.

Additionally, the legislation requires the Ohio Secretary of State’s Office to send informational postcards to every registered Ohioan that explains how to request their Vote-by-Mail ballot. Voters who want to cast a ballot must then either print out an Vote-by-Mail ballot request form themselves or write out the necessary information on a blank piece of paper, affix their own postage, and send it to their county board of elections. Alternatively, registered Ohioans can call their county board and ask for a Vote-by-Mail ballot request be sent to them. A directory of County Boards of Elections can be found at VoteOhio.gov.

Boards will then process the request, print the ballot and send it to the voter. Each voter must receive their ballot, cast their vote, and return the ballot in a postage-paid envelope, postmarked by April 27th. Learn more at VoteOhio.gov.
