Ohio now has No-Fault absentee voting. Any properly registered Ohio elector may vote an absentee ballot at any election without stating a reason.
Absentee voting begins 35 days before primary and general elections and - except for voters hospitalized due to emergencies - ends the Saturday before the election. However, Absentee voting does not always begin 35 days before a Special Election. You may contact your county Board of Elections to learn if a Special Election is being held in your precinct and when absentee ballots will be available.

The cost for returning your November 5, 2013 General Election ballot is $1.12.
