Ohio Provisional Voting

Provisional ballots are counted until the 11th day after Election Day or until any hearing required under State Law with regard to the provisional voter is held, whichever is earlier.

A provisional ballot is used to record a vote if the voter's eligibility is in question and the voter would otherwise not be allowed to vote. There are several scenarios where a voter may cast a provisional ballot:

Ohio Election Dates

The next election date is Tuesday, May 7, 2019 (Primary/Special Election). The registration deadline is Monday, April 8, 2019.

Contact your local Board of Elections for more information.

Ohio ID Needed for Voting

Ohio law requires that every voter, upon appearing at the polling place to vote on Election Day, must announce his or her full name and current address and provide proof of identity.

The forms of identification that may be used by a voter who appears at a polling place to vote on Election Day include:

Ohio Absentee Ballot Process

A qualified Ohio voter does not have to state a reason to vote by an absentee ballot, and a voter with only a Social Security number or an Ohio license number as identification can cast a regular ballot. However, the ballot must be applied for in writing. If you are properly registered to vote, you submit your written request to the board of elections of the county in which your voting residence is located. Your request must contain certain information (discussed below) and your original signature.
