CLEVELAND — Ohio voters are hitting the polls Tuesday as a majority of counties have issues on the ballot for the state's May 4 primary election. Below is a guide to everything you need to know before voting -- including multiple school levies that are up for consideration.
WHAT TIME ARE THE POLLS OPEN?
Ohio's polls are open from 6:30 a.m. until 7:30 p.m. Remember, you are still permitted to vote as long as you're in line before the polls close at 7:30 p.m.

WHAT FORM OF ID SHOULD I BRING SO I CAN VOTE?
You need to have a form of ID with you to cast a ballot on election day. Acceptable forms of identification are listed HERE.
WHAT IF I FORGET MY ID?
You can cast a provisional ballot by providing your Ohio driver's license or state identification number OR the last four digits of your Social Security number. Once the information is reviewed and verified by the board of elections, your ballot will be counted.
But... There's more...
"If you do not provide one of the above documents or your driver’s license/state identification number or the last four digits of your Social Security number at the precinct, you will still be able to vote using a provisional ballot," according to the Ohio Secretary of State's site. "However, in order for that ballot to be counted, you must return to the board of elections no later than seven days following Election Day to provide a qualifying form of identification."

WHAT ABOUT THE 11TH CONGRESSIONAL DISTRICT ELECTION?
It’s important to note this is not the election for Ohio’s 11th Congressional District as several contenders seek the Marcia Fudge’s seat, which was vacated when tapped to serve as HUD secretary within President Biden’s administration. That election will take place on Tuesday, Aug. 3.
