 AT THE POLLS

What you need to know

Bring your I.D. – Voters must bring identification to the polls to verify identity. The following are acceptable: a current and valid photo I.D.; military identification; or a copy of a current (within the last 12 months) utility bill (including cell phone bill), bank statement, government check, paycheck or other government document, other than a voter registration acknowledgment mailed by the board of elections, that shows the voter’s name and current address.

Provisional ballots – Voters who do not provide one of the aforementioned documents will still be able to vote using a provisional ballot, which “is used to record a vote if a voter’s eligibility is in question and the voter would otherwise not be permitted to vote at his or her polling place,” according to the Ohio Secretary of State’s website. To cast a provisional ballot, the voter must sign an affirmation statement swearing to his or her identity under penalty of election falsification. A provisional ballot is cast “provisionally” until the board of elections can confirm the voter’s eligibility to cast the ballot and the validity of the ballot.

 VOTING BY ABSENTEE BALLOT 

Any qualified Ohio voter whose registration information is up to date may request and vote an absentee ballot without giving a reason. The following is required: your name; your legal signature; the address at which you are registered to vote; your date of birth; one of the following items showing proof of your identification: your Ohio driver’s license number, the last four digits of your Social Security number, or a copy of a current and valid photo identification, military identification, or a current utility bill, bank statement, government check, paycheck or other government document that shows your name and current address; a statement identifying the election for which you are requesting an absentee voter’s ballot; a statement that you are a qualified elector; and the address to which you want the ballot to be mailed. Absentee application forms are also available on the Ohio Secretary of State’s website (http://www.sos.state.oh.us/upload/elections/forms/11-A.pdf).

IN-PERSON ABSENTEE – Voters may cast an absentee ballot in person at the Mahoning County Board of Elections Office (345 Oak Hill Ave., Entrance A, Youngstown) or the Trumbull County Board of Elections Office (2947 Youngstown Road SE, Warren). Both will observe the following additional hours for in-office absentee voting: 8 a.m.-5 p.m., Tuesday, Oct. 2-Friday, Oct. 5; 8 a.m.-9 p.m., Tuesday, Oct. 9; 8 a.m.-5 p.m., Wednesday, Oct. 10-Friday, Oct. 12; 8 a.m.-5 p.m., Monday, Oct. 15-Friday, Oct. 19; 8 a.m.-7 p.m., Monday, Oct. 22-Friday, Oct. 26; 8 a.m.-7 p.m., Monday, Oct. 29-Thursday, Nov. 1; and 8 a.m.-6 p.m., Friday, Nov. 2.
