Am I eligible to vote early in-person?
Yes. You do not need a reason or excuse to vote early in-person. You only need to be registered to vote.
How do I vote early in-person?
Each county in Ohio has one early in-person voting location, and it is generally held at the county’s Board of Elections office. There are a few counties that hold early voting at a different location. You can find your early voting location here.
When does early voting begin and end?
Early voting begins approximately four weeks before Election Day and ends the day before Election Day. Voting hours vary over the early vote period, with hours extending the closer we get to Election Day. Weekend voting hours are available closer to Election Day.
Do I need to bring photo identification to vote early in person?
No, but you do need to provide some form of identification. During early vote, you may present:
- The last 4 digits of your Social Security Number,
- Your Ohio driver’s license number,
- Your Ohio ID card number, or
- Any of the acceptable forms of ID that may be used on Election Day.
You may be asked to complete a form when voting with the last 4 digits of your SSN, or with your Ohio driver’s license number or Ohio ID number. However, you should still receive a regular ballot.
Can I still vote early in-person if I already signed up to vote by mail?
Yes, if you already requested a mail-in ballot, you can still vote early in-person!
So long as you did not return your vote by mail ballot, you can go to your early voting location and cast a regular ballot in-person. You can bring your unused ballot with you to your polling location, but it is not required.
