PLAN YOUR VOTE: Tracking Your Ballot
October 29, 2020 by Ross Musick
Many Ohioans have already voted absentee using a mail-in ballot. If you took advantage of absentee voting this year, make sure your vote counts! You can now Track Your Ballot using an online resource from the Ohio Secretary of State. If you’ve returned your ballot back to your local board of elections – either by mail or by secure drop box – track your ballot to ensure your vote is counted.
You technically have until the day before Election Day to mail back your ballot, and the board of elections must receive your ballot within ten days after Election Day. To be safe, you should mail back your ballot promptly or return it to the secure ballot drop boxes available at your county’s board of election offices. Either you or a family member can drop it off there, but it must be returned no later than 7:30 pm on Election Day (Tuesday, November 8).
DRO is here to help you Plan Your Vote. We’ll be operating our Voter Hotline from 6:30 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. on Election Day at 614-466-7264 or 1-800-282-9181 (toll-free).
