Ohio Secretary of State Frank LaRose has urged Ohioans to “make their voice heard this election” as early in-person and absentee ballot voting enters its second week by using the safe and convenient options available for voters in the state.
In a public service campaign launched to mobilize Ohioans to get out the vote in the 2020 Elections, Secretary of State Larose spelt out three convenient options on how to request absentee ballots.
“Voters may request a vote-by-mail ballot one of three ways, including printing a request from VoteOhio.gov, calling your county board of elections, or making your own!”
Voters who can’t print their own form may simply write the following information on a blank sheet of paper:
Write: “I’m a qualified elector and I’m requesting an absentee ballot for the November 3 general election”
Date of Birth
Mailing Address (if different from your registration address)
Ohio driver’s license number OR last four digits of your Social Security number OR include a COPY of an acceptable form of ID
Sign and date your letter
Affix postage and mail it to your county board of elections.
Meanwhile, 27,808 in-person votes have been recorded on the 7th day of early voting at the Franklin County Board of Elections in Columbus, Ohio with 3,862 votes on Wednesday, October 14, 2020.
