Secretary of State Jon Husted: Election Day Is a Week from Today, Still Time to Request an Absentee Ballot
Secretary Husted outlines key dates and deadlines for next Tuesday’s General Election

Election Ballot Issues
On November 5, 2013, Ohioans will vote on 1,678 local issues, 194 of which are school issues.  A complete list of local issues appearing on the ballot is available here and at MyOhioVote.com. It is worth noting that the Hicksville Exempted Village School District has withdrawn their income tax issue from the ballot, which is noted in the spreadsheet available at the link above.

Absentee Voting by Mail
Voters have until this upcoming Saturday, November 2nd at noon to request an absentee ballot by mail. They may do so by contacting their county board of elections for more information, or by downloading an absentee ballot request form at MyOhioVote.com. Individuals looking to vote by mail are encouraged to request an absentee ballot sooner rather than late to ensure adequate time to complete and return the ballot.

For those who have already received ballots, they should complete, sign and seal their voted ballots, taking care to provide the required information, including proper identification. Voted ballots must be postmarked by the day before Election Day and received no later than 10 days after the election (November 15, 2013). Absentee ballots may also be delivered in person to boards of elections by the close of the polls on Election Day. They may not be returned at polling locations.

In-Person Absentee Voting
In-person absentee voting began October 1, 2013, or 35 days before the election. For specific information including times and locations, contact your board of elections.

Election Day Voting
Polls are open 6:30 am to 7:30 pm on Election Day. Voters heading to the polls must bring the proper form of ID and know their polling place and precinct. Voters can check their polling place and precinct and get other important voting information by visiting MyOhioVote.com.

Get Elections Updates and Ohio’s Virtual Voting Sticker
All voters are encouraged to link with “OhioSOSHusted” on Facebook and Twitter to get elections information and updates throughout the year.  Here they can also get a virtual voting sticker badge to let their friends and followers know they’ve participated in the General Election. Facebook users simply need to “like” Ohio Secretary of State Jon Husted’s official Facebook page to “wear” a virtual sticker on their wall. Twitter users may share their voting badge by visiting the Secretary of State’s website.
