Make Sure You're Registered
First, check to make sure that you are registered and that your name and address are correct. You can use the My Voter Information website to check your registration. It is especially important that you do this if you have not voted in the past four years.
Update Your Registration
If you still need to register, or you need to update your registration, you can do that in person at many locations throughout Ohio, including local board of elections, an office of the Ohio Bureau of Motor Vehicles, and public libraries. You can also download a PDF of the voter registration form online, fill it out, sign it and mail it to your county board of elections.
Send in Your Absentee Ballot Application
If you are registered to vote, you should have received an application for an absentee ballot in the mail. If you want to vote absentee, fill out this form and return it before November 5. If you did not receive an application, you should use the My Voter Information website to make sure the address on your registration is correct. You can also find the form on the Ohio Secretary of State website.
