STEP 3: VOTE !
In Ohio, we have 4 weeks to vote each election. As we have learned from the ongoing pandemic, voting early by mail (VBM) or in person will ensure your vote is counted.
VBM: It's easy and those ballots get counted first on election night. You must request a vote by mail ballot. Your ballot will be mailed to you beginning the first day voting begins: August 17, 2021 for the Primary and October 5, 2021 for the general election. You can return your completed ballot by mail or drop it in the box in the parking lot of the board of elections at 2925 Euclid Avenue, Cleveland.
IN PERSON: Voting at the Cuyahoga County Board of Elections starts on August 17, 2021 for the Primary and October 5, 2021 for the General Election. Click here for the early voting schedule: .
