ICYMI, the Ohio Secretary of State held a press conference today announcing state and local efforts to minimize the impact of the COVID-19 virus on Ohio's elections. Here's what you need to know for the March Primary:
- Over 100 polling locations (previously located in senior centers) have been moved. If you are voting on Election Day, March 17, verify your polling location at VoteOhio.gov. You can also call 866-OUR-VOTE with questions or to report problems voting.
- Vote by Mail is a good option for voters who don't want to leave home. Request an absentee ballot ASAP. Print the Absentee Ballot Application from home or contact your County Board of Election office to request an Absentee Ballot Application be sent to you. The deadline to request an absentee ballot is rapidly approaching. Ballots must be post-marked by Monday, March 16 or hand-delivered to the Board of Elections by 7:30 pm on Election Night.
- Early in Person Voting is another great option. Evening and weekend hours are available.
- Sign up to be a Poll Worker - if you are healthy and able, please sign up to be a poll worker. Poll workers are the backbone of our democracy and we are facing poll worker shortages. There's still time to be trained and you'll receive a stipend for your work.
- Election Protection Poll Monitors Needed in Cleveland - our non-partisan Election Protection coalition is still looking for volunteers who can assist voters in Cleveland. Volunteers will be stationed outside the polls to distribute voter education and report problems at the polls. Shifts are just four hours and training will be provided. Sign up here.
Together we can make this Primary Election a success. Thank you for doing your part!
