Ohioans can begin voting early on April 1. Ohio Public Radio’s Jo Ingles has details on absentee voting by mail and in person.

Ohioans will vote on primary races for statewide offices—including governor—as well as a statewide ballot issue that would allow the state to issue bonds for some capital improvements.

There are more than 600 local issues on the ballot, too.

On April 1, election boards will start to mail out absentee ballots to those who have requested them. Or Ohioans who want to vote early in person can vote at the early voting center designated by their county board of elections. 

An important deadline is looming if you want to vote in the May primary. Ohioans must register to vote by April 7. And voters should also update their address to make sure they don’t have to cast a provisional ballot.

But the good news is they can change their address and update their registration online at the secretary of state’s website at myohiovote.com.

Election Day is May 6.
