Today’s almost all mail-in primary election has created a lot of unusual changes for county election boards across the state. Ohioans with disabilities and those without a home mailing address are still permitted to vote in-person. Voters who requested an absentee ballot by the deadline but did not receive it in the mail can also show up in person to request a provisional ballot.
As of this morning, Montgomery County had about 15,000 unreturned ballots. That made it hard to predict how many people would drop off their ballot or vote in person.
