Did you know that you can vote early? You don't have to wait until Tuesday, Nov. 8, to let our legislators know how you feel. So read below to find out how you can ensure we do not lose one single vote to repeal Senate Bill 5 by voting NO on Issue 2.
To vote by absentee ballot, you need to:
Go to http://vote.franklincountyohio.gov or to your local board of elections.
To vote by mail, you need:
The last four digits of your Social Security number or your driver’s license ID number.
To vote in person, you need:
* A current and valid photo identification (such as Ohio driver license/ID card, state ID card, government ID). Photo identification must show name and current address (except that Ohio driver license or State ID card does not need to show current address if the address in the poll book is current); or
* A military identification that shows the voter’s name (does not need to show address); or
* A copy of a current (within the last 12 months) utility bill (including cell phone bill), bank statement, paycheck, government check, or other government document (including from a public college or university) that shows the voter’s name and current address.
If you do not provide one of these documents, you may vote by providing the last four digits of the your Social Security number and by casting a provisional ballot. Voters who do not have any of the above forms of identification, including a social security number, will still be able to vote by signing an affirmation swearing to the their identity and by casting a provisional ballot.
