Washington Absentee Ballot Process

Washington state is a vote by mail state, so all registered voters receive a ballot by mail. Absentee ballots only need to be requested if you will not be at your registered address during the 18 days before an election. If you are away from your registered address before an election, you can contact your county election official to see if they are able to forward your mail ballot to your new, temporary address.

Ohio Absentee Ballot Process

Absentee voting in Ohio is available and no excuse is required. The last day to request an absentee ballot is 7 days before an election.

Your marked absentee ballot must be postmarked by the day before Election Day and received no later than four days after the election in order to be counted. It can also be returned in person before the close of the polls on Election Day.


Any registered voter in Ohio.
