    Today is the final day that Ohioans can register to vote in order to cast a ballot in the 2020 General Election.

    Registration is available online at the Ohio Secretary of State website.

    Monday is also the deadline for updating your voter registration, such as an address change. It is important that your voter registration file reflect your current address.

    You may continue to update your address after today, but may be required to cast a provisional ballot.

    Early voting begins on Tuesday, Oct. 6. That is when absentee ballots will be sent to Ohioans who request them, and Tuesday is also when ballots can be cast early in-person at each county board of elections office.

    You can contact your county’s board of elections office (see directory here) for more information on voting in the 2020 General Election.
