You don’t need to leave your home to make your vote empower people of ALL abilities. In Ohio, you do not need to identify a reason to vote absentee. You can skip the lines on election day two ways: absentee voting by mail and early in-person voting. Both options begin October 9th and end November 6th. If you need assistance with voting, this is a great option.
Absentee Voting by Mail
