Mr. Perlatti will present an overview of voting by mail and in person in Cuyahoga County, and answer any questions you might have.

Vote by Mail Voter Application Drop-off
Saturday, September 26, 11 AM – 2 PM, West Shore Unitarian Universalist Church, 20401 Hilliard Blvd., Rocky River. 
Stay in your car and drop-off your vote by mail APPLICATION.  It will be safely and securely delivered to the Cuyahoga County Board of Elections.  Co-hosted by the Democratic Clubs of Bay Village, Fairview Park, North Olmsted and Rocky River



Step 1 – The Application: 

  • Everyone in Ohio received a vote by mail APPLICATION from the Secretary of State.  Fill it out, use their return envelope, put a stamp on it, and mail it in today.
  • If you’ve misplaced it, print an application from the Board of Elections by CLICKING HERE.  Put a stamp on your envelope and mail it to: Cuyahoga County Board of Elections, PO Box 89448, Cleveland, OH 44101-6448.  You can also request an application by calling them at: 216-443-8683.
  • If you’ve already sent in your vote by mail application, you can track the status by CLICKING HERE.

Step 2 – Your Ballot:

  • Wait to receive your actual BALLOT in the mail.  Ballots will begin being mailed on October 6th to everyone who has sent in their vote by mail application.
  • Complete your ballot when you receive it, put it in the provided envelope, put a stamp on it, and drop it in the mail the same day.

Vote by Mail Options:

  • Drop-off your application locally: You can drop-off your completed vote by mail APPLICATION with two groups who will drive them to the Board of Elections.  Save a stamp! — see more information below.
  • Deliver your vote by mail ballot to the Board of Elections: You can drop-off your completed, sealed BALLOT at the secure drop box located at the Board of Elections, 2925 Euclid Avenue, Cleveland.  Note: only family members and legal guardians can drop-off a BALLOT on behalf of someone else.


  • October 31 – last day to request your vote by mail ballot.  Don’t wait that long!
  • November 2 – final accepted postmark for vote by mail ballots


Following are the two in-person voting locations in Rocky River on November 3rd:

  • Rocky River Civic Center, 21016 Hilliard Blvd
  • Rocky River Presbyterian Church, 21750 Detroit Rd.

Vote In-person Options:

NOTE: if you requested a vote by mail ballot, but change your mind and show up to vote at the Civic Center or Church, you will need to cast a provisional ballot that is counted much later.  It is important to decide NOW how you plan to vote; and stick with your plan!
