Early vot­ing is already under­way for the Nov. 5 elec­tion in Ohio.

County boards of elec­tions offices are open for early vot­ing dur­ing reg­u­lar and any extended hours now through Nov. 1 at 6 p.m. Under Ohio law, all reg­is­tered vot­ers have the oppor­tu­nity to vote early with­out stat­ing a rea­son.

Both reg­u­lar and extended hours vary from county to county.

Reg­is­tered vot­ers also have the oppor­tu­nity to vote from the con­ve­nience of their own home by request­ing an absen­tee bal­lot.

The bal­lots must be returned to the board of elec­tions office in the voter’s county of res­i­dent by 7:30 p.m. on Elec­tion Day (Nov. 5) or, if sent by U.S. mail, post­marked by Nov. 4.

Absen­tee bal­lot appli­ca­tions are avail­able at any board of elec­tions office or may be requested by mail. They are also avail­able online at www.ohiosecretaryofstate.com.
