When will I get my ballot?
Under Ohio law, ballots will be mailed starting the first day of early voting.
When should I return my ballot?
All voted mail-in ballots must be returned by mail, or hand-delivered to the Board of Elections’ office, on or before 7:30 p.m. Election Day.
When should my ballot be postmarked by?
Ballots postmarked prior to USPS end of business, the day before the election, will be counted if received by the Board of Elections up to 4 days following the election. (Overseas ballots can be postmarked on Election Day)
Even abroad, citizens can exercise their right to vote. If you are on active duty in the U.S. Armed Forces outside the state, you, your spouse and dependents may vote by an armed service absentee ballot if you meet the requirements.
