Deadline Is Approaching To Participate In 2020 Ohio Primary Election

Date: April 14, 2020

The coronavirus crisis has changed how we live our lives. Ohio is working to overcome the challenges it has brought to us., It is important to have the small business voice heard in the 2020 Ohio Primary Election. The Ohio General Assembly has put in place a plan to allow all Ohioans to continue voting by mail (NO IN-PERSON VOTING) until April 28. PLEASE MAKE SURE YOU ARE HEARD & VOTE!

NOTE: If you already voted by mail before the previously scheduled election date (March 17) you cannot vote again. Your ballot has been cast.

If you have not yet obtained your ballot, here are the easy steps you can take to obtain and submit your absentee ballot:

Begin by filling out and mailing in an application for an absentee ballot to your county Board of Elections. The Ohio Secretary of State website has a page that generates a printable application here. This request must be mailed three days before the April 28 election extension deadline. A mail-in absentee ballot will then be sent back to you.

After receiving and filling out your ballot, simply then mail it to your county Board of Elections (must be postmarked by April 27). Due to the mail-in delay in this voting process, ballots need to be mailed out by the day before the extension deadline. You can also personally deliver your completed ballot to your county’s board of elections. They all have designated drop boxes.

You can find a list of county Boards of Elections and their mailing addresses here

Based on this method of voting, voter “turnout” is projected to be low for the Ohio primary election. That is why it makes it even more important to make your voice heard on behalf of pro-business candidates. Please vote and remind others of this change in election procedures.
