Ohio Military, Overseas May Primary Ballots Go Out
Ohio's elections chief reminds Ohioans that early voting in the May 6 primary begins for military and overseas voters on Saturday and for others on April 1.
The election includes same-party candidate contests, a statewide ballot issue and about 600 local issues. Secretary of State Jon Husted says county election boards would begin mailing requested absentee ballots to registered military and overseas voters Saturday. They'll go out to other voters beginning April 1, when early in-person voting begins. The deadline to request an early ballot is noon on May 3. Voted ballots that are mailed must be postmarked by May 5 and received by May 16. Election boards also will accept them until polls close May 6. They can't be returned at polling places.
