The Cleveland disability lawyers at Liner Legal are here to help you get your vote cast, and ensure it gets counted. Below we have some helpful tips to make the voting process in Ohio a little easier.
Dates to Remember
October 5: Last day to register to vote!
If you have not registered to vote yet, do it here! If you aren’t registered by or on October 5, you won’t be eligible to vote. Don’t wait, register now!
October 16: Last day to request your absentee ballot!
Are you nervous about heading out to the polls this year? You can still vote while staying safe at home. BUT- you have to request your absentee ballot by October 16. You will receive a form in the mail to fill out, then send back. Once your request is processed and approved, you will get your absentee ballot in the mail. The earlier you request your ballot, the better.
October 26: Last day to mail your ballot!
Your absentee ballot MUST be mailed by October 26. This ensures that your ballot has time to get where it needs to be and can be counted. Have you already mailed your ballot? Check the status of your ballot here!
Accessible Absentee Voting
Are you or a loved one unable to vote using the absentee ballot process due to a disability? There is help! You still need to request your absentee ballot, so make sure that is done first. For more information on accessible absentee voting for those with disabilities, click here.
