Register Now if You Want to Vote by Mail
Deadline is July 30 to get on list for first wave of ballots for November election
If you want to vote by mail in the November general election, you should register -- or update your voting information -- now, according to the Cuyahoga County Board of Elections.
The Ohio Secretary of State is now preparing to send vote-by-mail applications to all Ohio registered voters.
“In order to ensure that all voters get their vote by mail application, we urge them to register or update their registration,” Cuyahoga County Board of Elections Director Jane Platten said in a news release.
If you've moved or changed your last name, you should update your information, she said.
The Secretary of State will mail the first applications just after Labor Day. Only voters who are registered as of July 30 will get an application in the first mailing.
There will be a supplemental mailing going out closer to the election, but election officials are urging voters not to take chances if they wish to vote by mail.
Voter registration cards are available on the Board of Elections website, www.boe.cuyahogacounty.us, or by calling the board of Elections at (216) 443-3298. Voter registration cards are also available at all library branches.
