Ohioans who requested an absentee ballot for Tuesday’s General Election are running out of time to submit those ballots.

According to the Secretary of State’s Office, absentee ballots that are being mailed to their boards of election must be postmarked by Monday, the day before the election in order to be counted.

You can also return your absentee ballot in-person to your county board of elections before the close of the polls at 7:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Election Day.

Ohio absentee ballots are the first votes counted on Election Night.

For Pennsylvanians, absentee ballots must be received by their county election office by 8 p.m. on Election Day, Tuesday, November 8, 2022.  Postmarks are not enough.

If you have an emergency such as an unexpected illness or disability or last-minute absence from your municipality, Pennsylvania allows voters to get a ballot after the deadline.
