PLAN YOUR VOTE — DECIDE NOW

VOTE BY MAIL:

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.

Deadlines:

  • 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
