Election Day Eve: What You Need to Know

It’s hard to believe the 2016 General Election is just one day away! Follow our guide below to make sure you are ready to cast your ballot.

Your Personalized Voting Information
We make it easy for you to check your voter registration status, find your polling location, and view your sample ballot all at once. Visit our website: My Voting Info.

Early Voting Concludes Today
Why wait until tomorrow when you can vote today? Stop by the Cuyahoga County Board of Elections until 2:00 p.m. to cast your ballot early in person.

Postmark Vote-by-Mail Ballots Today
If you are voting by mail and haven’t returned your ballot yet, you MUST postmark your ballot today. If you cannot postmark your ballot today, the only other option you have is to drop it off at the Cuyahoga County Board of Elections by 7:30 p.m. on Election Day. You cannot drop it off at a polling location.

Know Where to Vote
You must vote at your assigned polling location. If you are not sure where to vote, you may look it up on our website: Where Do I Vote?

This is especially important for registered voters who may have moved without updating their registration. So long as you visit the correct polling location for your new residence, you will be able to vote a provisional ballot.

Bring Proper ID
Voters must bring identification to the polls in order to verify their identity. This may include:
• A current and valid photo identification card (e.g., driver’s license or state ID)
• A military identification
• A copy of a current utility bill, bank statement, government check, paycheck, or other government document that shows the voter’s name and current address.

Know what is on Your Ballot
Be prepared and view your ballot before voting. Download your sample ballot on our website: What’s on My Ballot?
