Absentee Voting for Primary Election (Franklin County, Ohio)
Absentee voting for the May 4, 2010 primary election is underway with the start of in-person voting at the Franklin County Board of Elections and the mailing of absentee ballots to voters who’ve applied to vote from home.
Absentee voting hours at the board of elections will run from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. on weekdays through May 3 and on Saturday May 1 from 8 a.m. to noon.
More than 30,000 have requested absentee ballots by mail since applications were sent to some 600,000 active voters last month.
Some key dates to remember:
Voters have until May 1 to request a ballot by mail or until May 3 to ask for one in person at the board of elections.
Ballots returned by mail must be postmarked no later than the May 3 and returned to the board of elections by May 14.
Absentee ballot applications are also available on the board’s Web site. The site also includes copies of sample ballots for each precinct and Election Day polling locations that registered voters can find by entering their name and home address.
