Make 'Absentee Ballots' available at your store!

If your customers are asking for Absentee Ballot Applications at your stores – here’s information on how you choose to participate.  
The coronavirus crisis has led to many changes in our daily life – including how we vote. What hasn’t changed is our bedrock commitment to making sure that every Ohio voter can make their voice heard in this election and that is where you come in. Because the Ohio primary has been extended until April 28th and converted to a vote-by-mail process, we need your help to get the word out.
 
Would you be willing to offer absentee ballot applications at your local stores? For many Ohioans, that trip to the local grocery store is the only regular reason to leave their home. After picking up an application, voters can either mail or drop off their completed absentee ballot application at their local board of elections. Ohioans have until April 25 th to request their absentee ballot.
