Cleveland - The Cuyahoga County Board Elections wants all registered voters to know that they have been mailed a Vote by Mail ballot application for the November 6th, 2018 General Election.
The mass mailing is being conducted by the Ohio Secretary of State. “People need to be aware that is an official government issued ballot application and it is perfectly acceptable in Cuyahoga County,” said Pat McDonald, the Director of the Cuyahoga County Board of Elections.
In Cuyahoga County over 100,000 people are expected to vote by mail in this Election and this mailing will make it easier for them to cast their ballots.
The Board of Elections always encourages people to take advantage of this voting method. “Vote by mail is safe and secure and it allows voters to bank their ballots ahead of Election Day. It is also a great way to be assured that there is zero chance of missing the Election if something unexpected happens on November 6th” said McDonald. Voting by mail also provides voters with additional time to study the candidates and issues.
The Board encourages people to enroll in the VoterNotify program, especially if they vote by mail. Once enrolled, the Board will send a text message or email when their ballot application has been received and when their voted ballot arrives at the Board. People may sign-up for VoterNotify on the Board’s website: www.443vote.com.
Vote by Mail ballot applications are also available on the Board of Elections website: www.443vote.com, by calling 216-443-VOTE (8683), and at all public libraries.
The Secretary of State will conduct a second ballot application mailing following the October 9th voter registration deadline.
