Voters Need To Register To Vote Or Update Their Voting Information For The November 6th Presidential General Election
The Cuyahoga County Board of Elections is urging citizens who wish to Vote by Mail to register to vote, or update their existing voter information, as soon as possible.
The Ohio Secretary of State is preparing to send Vote by Mail applications to all Ohio registered voters. “In order to ensure that all voters get their Vote by Mail application we urge them to register or update their registration,” said Jane Platten, Director of the Cuyahoga County Board of Elections.
“Voters who have moved or changed their name must update their voter registration records so the Vote by Mail application will go to the new address and include their correct name,” said Platten.
The Secretary of State will mail the first Vote by Mail applications just after Labor Day. Only voters who are currently registered, or have registered on, or before, July 30th will get an application in this first mailing. There will be a supplemental mailing going out closer to the election, but election officials are urging voters not to take chances if they wish to Vote by Mail.
Voter Registration Cards are available on the Board of Elections website: www.boe.cuyahogacounty.us, or by calling the board of Elections at (216) 443-3298. Voter Registration cards are also available at all libraries.
