Absentee and In-person Early Voting

Voting by Absentee Ballot in Lucas County



Ohio now has No-Fault absentee voting. Any properly registered Ohio elector may vote an absentee ballot at any election without stating a reason.

Absentee voter ballots will begin to be mailed 28 days before primary and general elections and - except for voters hospitalized due to emergencies - ends the Saturday before the election. However, Absentee voting does not always begin 28 days before a Special Election. You may contact your county Board of Elections to learn if a Special Election is being held in your precinct and when absentee ballots will be available.

For more information about absentee ballots and voting:
 The postage needed for returning your Absentee Ballot is $0.68.

Note: Only military and overseas voters can email their applications for absentee voter ballots. All other applicants must mail or deliver their applications to our office.  Military and overseas voters can email their ballot to lucas@ohiosecretaryofstate.gov.
