Early voting — both in-person and by mail — starts today, so you can now vote in the Nov. 2 general election whenever is convenient.

Details: The Franklin County Board of Elections at 1700 Morse Road is open 8am-5pm on weekdays through Oct. 22.

Mail-in absentee ballots require you to fill out an application requesting one.

  • You can fill out this application online, print it and mail it to your local elections board, or call the board and ask for an application be mailed to you (614-525-3100).
  • The deadline for requests is Oct. 30 and the postmark deadline is Nov. 1.

What's next: Franklin County residents will decide on a number of local tax levies and other issues, as well as city council and school board races.

🗳 Even if you're waiting until Election Day to cast a ballot, it's still a good idea to confirm your polling location ahead of time.
