COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Ohioans wanting to vote in the upcoming presidential primary have only a few days left to register.

The deadline to register to vote in the March 15 primary is Tuesday. Voters can get registration forms online at or at county boards of elections and local libraries.

Those mailing in their registration forms must have them postmarked by Tuesday to be considered valid. All 88 county boards of elections and the Secretary of State’s office in downtown Columbus will be open until 9:00 p.m. that day to accept registration forms.

The Secretary of State’s office says all Ohio voters may begin voting on Wednesday, the first day after the close of registration. They can vote in-person or by mailing in an absentee ballot.
