Make Your Own Vote-by-Mail Ballot Request

Voters may request a vote-by-mail ballot one of three ways, including printing a request from, calling your county board of elections, or making your own! Voters who can’t print their own form may simply write the following information on a blank sheet of paper.

Write: “I’m a qualified elector and I’m requesting an absentee ballot for the [date of the the election for which you are requesting an absentee ballot].”

List your:

  • Full Name 
  • Date of Birth
  • County
  • Registration Address
  • Mailing Address (if different from your registration address)
  • Ohio driver’s license number OR last four digits of your Social Security number OR include a COPY of an acceptable form of ID

Sign and date your letter

Affix postage, and mail it to your county board of elections. All county BoE addresses are available here.

Thanks for voting!
