What to expect when you vote on Election Day

Vote on Election Day

What to expect at your voting location

When you arrive at the voting location, you see election workers ready to assist you.

Go to the table where the election workers are to start the voting process.

At the Registration Table you will:
  1. State your name and address.
  2. If it is a partisan primary, state your political party.
  3. Submit proper identification. See below for what is allowed as proper identification when voting.
  4. Sign the book verifying your statement.
After verifying your registration you will:
  1. Receive the proper ballot style based on your address and political party (if voting in a Primary).
  2. Mark your choices privately.
  3. Insert your ballot in the voting machine tabulator.

Proper identification is:
  • A current and valid drivers license;
  • A current and valid photo identification issued by the State of Ohio or the U.S. government;
  • Military identification;
  • Copy of a current utility bill'
  • Copy of a current bank statement;
  • Copy of a current government check;
  • Copy of a current paycheck;
  • Other government document that shows the voter's name and current address (excluding a voter registration acknowledgement notice mailed by the board of elections).

Provisional voting

If you do not have any of the above forms of identification you may provide either your Ohio driver’s license or state identification number (which begins with two letters followed by six numbers) or the last four digits of your Social Security number and cast a provisional ballot. Once the information is reviewed and verified by the board of elections, your ballot will be counted.

If you do not provide one of the above documents or your driver’s license/state identification number or the last four digits of your Social Security number at the precinct, you will still be able to vote using a provisional ballot. However, in order for that ballot to be counted, you must return to the board of elections no later than seven days following Election Day to provide a qualifying form of identification.
