New Election Info

Ohio has set a new, almost exclusively mail-in primary election for April 28, due to the coronavirus, ignoring the timing recommendations of the state elections chief and some voting-rights groups. Gov. DeWine signed a sweeping relief bill, containing the change. Under the new scenario, the standard in-person primary is off…and registered voters who haven’t yet cast a ballot will need to apply for an absentee ballot to vote. They can do that by printing an application form off the internet, calling their county elections board to request one, or writing the necessary information on a piece of paper. Requests must be received at the board by noon on April 25, except in cases of unforeseen hospitalizations. Once a ballot is received and completed, it must be postmarked by April 27, or it can be directly delivered to the voter’s county election board on Election Day.
