>>Coronavirus: What you need to know today

There will not be in person voting for the general public at board of elections Tuesday.

However, there are three reasons you may need to go to your board of elections to vote in person:

  • Individuals with disabilities who require in-person voting
  • Those who do not have a home mailing address.
  • Those who requested absentee ballots, but did not receive it in the mail

“If you have not requested an absentee ballot, don’t think that you’re going to go to the board of elections and get one," Lt. Gov. Jon Husted said. “That’s not how it works. It’s only for people that requested one and didn’t get one.”

Voters who need to send in their ballots by U.S. Mail must have them postmarked by today, April 27, and received by the board of elecions by May 8.

If you prefer the security of dropping off your ballot in the secure ballot boxes outside each county’s board of elections, you can drop them off by 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, April 28.
