The Cuyahoga County Board of Elections is encouraging voters to take advantage of voting by mail in the November 5 General Election. Vote by Mail opens on October 1.
There are over 600 candidates and 88 issues on the ballot.
"This is a very important election," said Pat McDonald, Director of the Cuyahoga County Board of Elections. "Voters will elect municipal leaders, judicial candidates, and school board members. There are also three major County tax issues and proposed changes to the County Charter that will impact residents. This makes voting by mail an attractive option. When you cast your ballot by mail it gives you extra time to study the candidates and issues," said McDonald.
Individuals who wish to cast ballots by mail in the November 5 General Election need to request their Vote by Mail applications. The Cuyahoga County Board of Elections will NOT automatically mail Vote by Mail applications to voters for this election.
To request an application visit: www.443vote.com, or call 216-443-VOTE. Vote by Mail applications are also available at all public libraries.
