The deadline to vote absentee/early in person is Monday, Nov. 4 at 4 p.m. Voters may vote early/absentee at the board office located at 1495 W. Longview Ave. and use the building entrance at the rear of the Longview Center in the lower level parking lot at the southwest door.

Hours for absentee/early voting in person are as follows:

• Friday Oct. 25 – 8 a.m. until 4 p.m.

• Saturday Oct. 26 – 8 a.m. until Noon

• Monday Oct. 28 through Friday Nov. 1 – 8 a.m. until 4 p.m.

• Saturday Nov. 2 – 8 a.m. until Noon

• Monday Nov. 4 – 8 a.m. until 4 p.m.

The deadline to request an absentee ballot by mail is Saturday, Nov. 2 at noon. Absentee ballots returned in person to the board office must be received by the close of polls (7:30 P.M.) on Election Day November 5.

Voted absentee ballots returned by mail must be postmarked by November 4, and received in the board office by November 15. Voted ballots can be mailed back to the board office, or the voter, or a member of the voter’s immediate family, may return the ballot sealed in the envelope to the board office.

No absentee ballots may be returned to the polling place on Election Day. If a voter who has requested an absentee ballot by mail appears at their polling place on Election Day to vote, they must vote a Provisional ballot.

As of October 24, 706 voters have cast their ballot at the Board of Elections Office. 1057 absentee ballots have been mailed to voters, and 545 of those have been voted and returned.

The Board of Elections also encourages voters who plan to vote at the polls on Election Day to call the Board of Elections office prior to November 5 if they’re not sure of their polling location.

Voters may contact the Elections office at 419-774-5530, or by email at: [email protected].

A voter who has moved or changed their name but didn’t update their voter registration with the Board of Elections office prior to the October 7 deadline can come to the board office during absentee voting hours and change their address and/or name. They will then be required to cast a Provisional ballot.

The Board of Elections also encourages anyone who must vote a Provisional to cast their ballot at the board office when they change their voting information to alleviate long lines at their polling place.
