How To Make Sure Your Vote Counts In This Unique 2020 Primary

Apr 22, 2020

Cincinnati Edition takes a look at the upcoming presidential and local primary contests and what voters need to do to participate.

Voters in Ohio can vote by mail until April 28 by going to voteohio.gov and printing their own absentee ballot request form, or by calling their local county board of elections to have one sent. Ballot requests must be made by noon on April 25, and ballots have to be postmarked no later than April 27. 

Cincinnati Edition speaks with Ohio Secretary of State Frank LaRose; Jen Miller, executive director of  the League of Women Voters of Ohio; and Andre Washington, the president of the Ohio A. Philip Randolph Institute; about what voters need to do to vote by mail and how the system will work to record their ballots. More information can also be found at vote411.org or by calling 1-866-687-8683 (1-866-Our-Vote).
