Vote by mail, early voting opens October 4th in Cuyahoga County

CUYAHOGA COUNTY, OH (WOIO) -

Vote by Mail and Early Voting at the Cuyahoga County Board of Elections for the November 8th General Election opens October 4th.

The opening of Vote by Mail marks the date when the Board of Elections will begin mailing ballots to voters who have submitted Vote by Mail ballot applications. This also means voters will be able to vote early at the Board of Elections starting on Tuesday.

Officials at the Board of Elections are reminding voters who wish to cast a ballot by mail that they must request a ballot application. "The Board of Elections has not automatically mailed ballot applications to voters for this election," said Jane Platten, Director of the Cuyahoga County Board of Elections. "We want to make sure voters know they must submit a ballot application in order to Vote by Mail," said Platten.

Vote by Mail ballot applications are available on the Board of Elections website: http://www.boe.cuyahogacounty.us by calling 216-443-3298, and at public libraries. Ballot applications that are returned by mail must be received by the Cuyahoga County Board of Elections on or before noon on November 5th. Hand delivered ballot applications must be returned by 6 p.m. on November 4th.

The Board of Elections is open for early voting between 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday. The Board of Elections is located at 2925 Euclid Avenue, Cleveland. Early voting is available from October 4th through November 4th. (Voting at the Board of Elections on November 8th will be by provisional ballot only.)

The voter registration and change of address deadline for the November 8th General Election is Tuesday, October 11th, at 9:00 p.m. Voters who have not registered, or have moved and not updated their registration, must do so on or before October 11th. Voter Registration Cards are available at public libraries and on the Board of Elections website: www.boe.cuyahogacounty.us.
