#AdvocacyMatters: Your Right, Your Vote

March 1, 2024 / #AdvocacyMatters

With less than three weeks to go until Ohio’s March 19th primary election, the path to a successful voting experience starts now!

Early voting is an option that is available to all Ohioans regardless of disability. There are two primary ways to vote before Election Day in Ohio: By mail with an absentee ballot, or by voting early in-person at an early voting location. For early in-person voting, the available times and dates vary.

If you cannot make it to an official polling place, you can vote early with an absentee ballot. Absentee ballots can be requested several ways: Through an application downloaded from the Ohio Secretary of State website, by requesting one to be mailed to you, or by requesting one in person at your county board of elections office. The deadline to request an absentee ballot for the upcoming March 19th election is Tuesday, March 12th.

A remote absentee ballot marking tool is also available for people who are blind or have vision impairments and use screen reader technology and want to vote privately and independently.

There are many different ways to participate in the upcoming election. You can learn more by exploring our Election Resource Center at www.disabilityrightsohio.org/vote.
