OUR DEMOCRACY THANKS YOU!!!

SCROLL DOWN FOR LOTS OF INFORMATION ABOUT YOUR VOTING RIGHTS IN THE STATE OF OHIO.

As many as 40,000 Cleveland voters may not be registered to vote at their current address. PLEASE don’t let yourself be one of them.

Confirm that your registration is up-to-date.

Consider Voting by Mail! Your neighbors are.

It is so convenient! 

    • Request a VOTE-BY-MAIL BALLOT. If you have not received your vote-by-mail ballot and it’s more than 4-5 days since you signed up for vote-by-mail, or if you have misplaced your ballot, call the Board of Elections (216-443-8683) and ask them to send you another ballot.
    • Track your ballot by signing up for VoterNotify.
    • If you have received a Vote by Mail ballot and you go to your polling place on election day, you will be asked to vote a provisional ballot, so make sure to mail in or drop off your ballot!

 

TIPS ON HOW TO BE SURE YOUR VOTE BY MAIL BALLOT IS OK

If you have received your vote-by-mail ballot:

  • Open the envelope. There are two envelopes and your ballot.
  • Open the ballot.
  • Fill in the ovals next to the persons or issues you want to vote for.
  • Please fill out the whole ballot. Items further down on the ballot are the most important in our daily lives.
  • When you are done voting, place your ballot in the small security envelope that will keep your votes confidential. Seal the envelope!
  • Next, carefully fill in ALL the yellow highlighted sections on the small security envelope. Remember to sign and date it!
  • Put the security envelope into the mailing envelope, which is addressed to the Board of Elections. The ballot envelope will tell you how many stamps you’ll need.
  • It’s very important to vote and mail in your ballot to the Board of Elections very soon after you receive it. The Board needs sufficient time to count and process your ballot. Your (mailed) ballot must be postmarked no later than Monday, November 2nd. Due to high volume, the US Postal Service estimates that it may take 2-5 days for your mailed ballot to be delivered to the Board of Elections.
  • Your ballot must be postmarked no later than November 5th.
  • If you are unable to mail the completed ballot, deliver it to the drop box behind the Board of Elections (30 & Euclid) anytime during October or, if necessary, by 7:30 pm on Tuesday, November 3rd.
  • Remember, you cannot deliver your mail-in ballot to your polling place.
  • If you don’t mail or deliver your ballot on time, you will have to vote a provisional ballot at your polling place on election day. It is very difficult, so we don’t recommend it.
