Polling location changes impact 80,000 voters this November

All voters are strongly encouraged to double-check their polling location before heading out to vote on Tuesday, November 5, 2019. That’s because polling location changes are happening in 16 municipalities, including seven wards within the City of Cleveland. The changes impact more than 80,000 voters.

The Board has mailed all affected voters a Voter Location Notification Card and they have also received a Voter Guide in the mail. “However, we know from past experience that some folks overlook these notifications.  Thousands of voters who are subject to these changes have not cast a ballot since last November so we are asking all voters to confirm their voting information to avoid any confusion on Election Day,” said Anthony Perlatti, Director of the Cuyahoga County Board of Elections.

An interactive map has been created to help voters easily identify their new polling location. The map can be accessed here: https://bit.ly/2ovTHuu

Voters can click on a Ward/Precinct and both their old and new polling location will appear.

Some of the reasons that polling locations are changing include the location no longer wants to host voting, ADA compliance issues, availability of parking and space, building renovations, and more. For specific inquiries, voters may contact the Board of Elections by calling 216-443-VOTE.

Voters can view their sample ballot, check their polling location, and view their voting history by clicking “My Voting Info” on the Board of Elections website at www.443vote.us.

Ohio’s “I Voted” sticker making its debut this Nov

Ohio’s new “I Voted” sticker is making its debut this election! You don’t have to wait until Election Day on November 5, 2019 to sport the new look. Early voting is happening now at the Cuyahoga County Board of Elections.

Ohio Secretary of State, Frank LaRose, called on Ohio’s students to create a new sticker design. After receiving more than 2,000 submissions, his office narrowed down the choices and left it up to Ohioans to choose via online poll. The contest was created to inspire young people to get excited about voting. If you look closely, the sticker says “Ohio Voted” and “I Voted.”

The sticker was designed by Emily Legg, a former senior at Teays Valley High School in Pickaway County.

How to get your sticker

To get an “I Voted” sticker, all you have to do is vote. You have three options for casting your vote in Ohio:

1. Early In-Person Voting at the Cuyahoga County Board of Elections
2. Vote-by-Mail
