1) The deadline for requests is October 31, but now that we are so close to the election, we recommend that you vote in person, either at the Board of Elections or on Election Day.


2) If you have received your ballot, please don't delay; complete it as soon as possible:

  • Fill out your ballot fully. Don't forget to sign it! 
  • Do not tear off the perforated tab at the bottom of the ballot; it's needed to ensure your ballot is counted.
  • Place your ballot in the inner ID envelope, and then write your ID number and date of birth, and sign on the outside of the envelope.
  • Place the ID envelope into the outer mailing envelope.
  • Put only one ballot in each envelope! If you put multiple voters' ballots in the same envelope, they will not be counted.

3)  Please don't mail your ballot now. Drop it off at the 24-hour drop box  until 7:30 pm on Election Day, November 3rd: Cuyahoga County Board of Elections, 2925 Euclid Ave., Cleveland, OH 44115. The box is in the parking lot behind the building, accessible from East 30th Street. A second ballot collection site is now available in the parking lot at Campus International School, across from the Board of Elections on the southeast corner of E. 30th and Chester Ave. Enter from E. 30th St. (This is not a 24-hour drop box; the hours can be found here.) Note that only an immediate family member (spouse, child, or close relative) may deliver a ballot for another person. Need a ride? Call 216-801-1101. 

If you make a mistake while filling out your ballot (and you still have your ballot in-hand), you can call the Board of Elections (216-443-8683) and request a new ballot. You can also send questions to votebymail@cuyahogacounty.gov

Early voting hours can be found here.
Want to vote in person at your neighborhood polling location on Election Day? 
You can vote all day (6:30 am-7:30 pm) on Election Day, Tuesday, November 3rd.

Ohio law requires that every voter, upon appearing at the polling place to vote on Election Day, must  provide proof of identity. Find information on voter identification requirements here.

Do you need help or know someone who needs help getting to the Board of Elections to vote early, drop off their ballot, or go to the polls on Election Day?
Call All Votes Count at 216-801-1101 and leave your name and number, and you will receive a call about arrangements. 

When All Votes Count volunteers are driving voters, they adhere to the following COVID prevention measures:
  1. Wear a face mask and if weather permits, keep car window(s) open;
  2. Voter(s) - no more than 2 at a time sit on each side of the back seat for social distancing;
  3. Have extra masks and hand sanitizer available in the car for driver and passenger use.

Many people are concerned that their VoteByMail ballot hasn't arrived.

You can track it online at http://VoteOhio.gov or http://boe.cuyahogacounty.us

I applied for a vote by mail ballot, but now I want to vote in person. What can I do?

If you applied to vote-by-mail, you cannot vote a regular ballot at your polling place on Election Day - you will be given a provisional ballot. But you ARE allowed to vote a regular ballot during Early In-Person Voting at the Board of Elections, beginning October 6. 
Visit the Voting Information Center for up-to-date info and official resources to help you prepare for the general election.

Do I need a photo ID to vote in Ohio? NO.

Confirm the ID you need to cast your ballot here: https://www.ohiosos.gov/elections/voters/id-requirements/ 

Attorneys and Voting Rights specialists are here to help, support, and answer your voting and election questions.
