COLUMBUS –State Senator Theresa Gavarone today reminded Ohioans of steps being taken to ensure a safe, secure and healthy election. Voters are strongly encouraged to confirm their polling places and be aware of all the options to vote in Ohio’s primary election this coming Tuesday, March 17, 2020.
"Even during these difficult times, voting remains incredibly easy in Ohio,” said Gavarone. “I encourage all eligible voters to, if possible, vote early either in-person or through mail-in ballot to ensure your voice is heard during this critical election."
Polling Location Changes Due to Coronavirus Impact
Because Ohio’s elderly population is specifically vulnerable to Coronavirus/COVID-19, polling places that were located in senior living centers are being relocated by county Boards of Elections in coordination with Ohio’s Secretary of State Frank LaRose.
For the most up to date information, Ohioans should visit www.VoteOhio.gov/CoronaFacts to confirm their polling place and read more about steps being taken to ensure cleanliness and safety.
Early and Absentee Voting Options
Ohio also offers several options to vote early or by mail.
