ABSENTEE BALLOT REQUEST DEADLINE: Friday, October 25, 2019.

For November elections, the Library will accept OHIO absentee ballot request forms for delivery to the appropriate Board of Elections.  In general, Ohio absentee ballot requests can be made until three days prior to the election, however, in order to allow time for the Libraries to mail or deliver the requests to County Boards of Elections and have a ballot mailed back to the voter, the Libraries' deadline is earlier.


You can pick up an Ohio Absentee Ballot request form at the Ask Me Desk (1st floor, University Library) or you can print one from the Ohio Secretary of State's web site.

In either case, drop your completed form off at the Ask Me Desk by the deadline and we will make sure it gets to the appropriate Ohio county Board of Elections.

Please be sure to complete your absentee ballot request form in blue or black INK.

More information on Absentee Voting in Ohio can be found on the Secretary of State's web site.
