There they can download the Federal Post Card Application, register to vote and request an absentee ballot, get answers to FAQs, track their ballots and sign up for election reminders via e-mail or social media. They may also contact their county board of elections directly.

Absentee Voting By Mail and In-Person
Absentee ballots for the rest of Ohio’s voting population will be available starting on October 1, 2013 (35 days prior to the election), for both in-person and by mail. For information, go to www.MyOhioVote.com.
