​Voting for the March 17, 2020 Primary Election has been extended until April 28, 2020. There will be NO voting at your polling location for this election. Voting will be conducted through mail-in Absentee Ballots.

This is a two-step process. First, you need to request an application for a ballot. You can obtain this by calling the board office at 419-636-1854, or by going to the Secretary of State website (see comments section for website). Once you have received, filled out, and returned your request, we will then mail a ballot to your address. If you have already cast a ballot, your vote WILL be counted, and there is no need to request another ballot. ​​
