  Voters cast their ballots at East Elementary School during Tuesday's general election in Athens, Ohio. Poll workers said they were getting steady numbers of voters throughout the day.

Secretary of State Jon Husted says nearly 110,000 Ohioans have requested absentee ballots by mail since early voting began on April 1. Voted ballots must be postmarked by May 5, the day before election day.

Absentee ballots can also be delivered, in person, to boards of elections no later than the close of the polls on election day. The ballots cannot be returned at polling locations. Voters who want to vote in person early can do so by going to their county’s designated early voting location. 

Along with local and statewide primary races, there are 614 school levies, bond issues and other money and government decisions on the ballot this May, and there is one statewide issue on the ballot that, if approved, would allow the state to issue bonds for capital improvement projects. 

More information about early voting can be found on the Secretary of State’s website at MyOhioVote.com.
