Why do the Ohio primary elections matter?
All eyes are focused on November, but Ohioans have the chance to go to the polls even sooner.
Ohio votes in the primary election this spring on March 17, and it's more than choosing a Presidential candidate. On this day, Ohio will vote for their representatives to the U.S. House, members of the Ohio Senate and State Representatives, members of the court, and many local issues that impact your community.
2020 Primary Election – The primary election in-person voting was cancelled due to the public health crisis. Ohioans that were eligible to vote on March 17, 2020, will be able to cast their ballot by mail with the postmark date on or before April 27, 2020. In-person voting will only occur on April 28 and only at boards of elections early vote centers, not at precinct polling locations. And in-person voting will only be available for individuals with disabilities who require in-person voting and those who do not have a home mailing address. Those Ohioans that cast their ballot early will have their vote count. The Ohio Secretary of State will mail all voters a postcard informing them on how they will be able to request their ballot by mail from their local county Board of Elections. The board will send them their ballot and a postage paid return envelope.
