LaRose said in all, 128 polling locations in Ohio will be moved out of nursing homes for the March 17 primary.
LaRose also says Ohioans should strongly consider voting by mail or early voting. To vote from home, visit VoteOhio.gov and request your absentee ballot from your county board of elections as soon as possible.
It’s very important to note that the official canvass of results is not finalized until the 21st day after the election (April 7, 2020). This allows for ballots submitted by mail to be postmarked by the day before election day and received through the tenth day after the election and still be reflected in the final, official results.
Curbside drop-off of absantee ballots at county boards will be available on Election Day. Many Ohioans will not be requesting absentee ballots until this week and could be concerned about returning their ballot in time to be counted. Further, many Ohioans may simply feel better about returning their completed ballot in person.
With that in mind, county boards will allow voters to drop off their absentee ballots at their county board of elections on election day from 6:30am to 7:30pm.
