to register to vote in May
The time has come for voters unsure of their registration status to double check it in time for the May 7 election by visiting www.MyOhioVote.com, which is created by Ohio Secretary of State Jon Husted's office. This five-minute task will ensure voters can participate in this year's local elections with ease, states a March 7 news release from Husted's office.
"Planning ahead always makes for a smoother Election Day and a better experience for voters," said Husted. "By ensuring their information at the board of elections is up to date now, voters can request an absentee ballot to vote by mail or go to the polls throughout the year without any hassle."
Ohio voters planning to go to the polls to vote in the May 7 Primary Election should have their voting information updated no later than voter registration deadline on April 8. Husted said the most common reason Ohio voters are required to cast a provisional ballot rather than a regular ballot is because they have moved and not updated their address for voting purposes.
