Voter Information

Eligibility and Registration
In order to vote in an election you must be registered to vote. For more information go to
LWVOhio’s Registration FAQ

Do I ever have to re-register?
You must notify the Board of Elections if you change your place of residence from one precinct to another within the county or if you change your name. If you move within a precinct you can make this change at your polling place on Election Day.

How can I be sure that I am registered?
After you have registered to vote the Board of Elections will mail you a registration card with your polling place location. If your registration card has not arrived before Election day contact your county Board of Elections. www.loraincountyelections.com

Some additional facts about Voting can be found from LWVOhio and from the Lorain County Board of Elections (site address above).

Absentee Voting
Absentee Voting in both primary and general elections begins 35 days before the day of the election and ends the day before the election. Once absentee ballots are available for voting any eligible voter may obtain and return an absentee ballot.
For more information about absentee voting see the Absentee Voting page at the Lorain County Board of Elections website
