Ohio Secretary of State Jon Husted began mailing absentee ballot applications to voters this week ahead of November’s General Election.


Applications should start arriving in mailboxes shortly after the Labor Day holiday.


Absentee voting by mail is easy. By filling in the required information and returning the application to the appropriate county board of elections, voters will then have their ballot mailed to them once absentee voting begins on October 10.


This year marks the fourth time absentee ballot applications have been sent out statewide.
