Tues. 12:45 p.m.: More about what Ohio voters need to know today

Tribune Chronicle

There is still time to cast your ballot in Ohio, including returning absentee ballots already obtained or voting in person, according to information released by Ohio Secretary of State Jon Husted.

If you have obtained an absentee ballot and not yet returned it, you may return it in person to your county board of elections before the polls close at 7:30 p.m. today, Husted said. A voted ballot also may be returned by a family member, Husted said.

However, it is too late to mail the ballot, because all absentee ballots needed to be postmarked by Monday. Ballots in the mail and postmarked by Monday may arrive at the board of elections within 10 days in order to be counted.

Voters can track their absentee ballot online by going to www.MyOhioVote.com/VoterToolkit.

To vote in person today, on Election Day, polls are open until 7:30 p.m. Voters planning to cast their ballot in person today must show proper identification.

Voters can find their polling location, check their registration and view a sample ballot by going to www.MyOhioVote.com/VoterToolkit. The online Voter Toolkit is a one-stop location for all necessary voting information. Ohio voters can visit the site to check their voter registration status, find their polling location, view their sample ballot and track their mailed absentee ballot.
