The Absentee Ballot Deadline for Ohio’s Primary Election has been extended to April 28, 2020.

Vote by mail ballots must be requested by April 25, 2020 and returned by April 28, 2020

Voters who already voted do not need to request a new ballot.  Ballots already received by mail or in-person will be included for this election.

Voters can obtain absentee ballots two ways:

  1. Voters can find applications for Absentee Ballot Application on our website at the link below.  Download and print off an Absentee Ballot Application and mail to the Board of Election’s office.
  2. If you do not have access to print off the Absentee Ballot Application, call our office at 419.674.2211 to request an Absentee Ballot Application to be mailed to you.

Effective immediately, the Hardin County Board of Elections Office will be closed to the public until further action is taken by the Board in order to reduce person-to-person contact.  We will remain available for phone, mail, and email business only.

Once your form is completed, you may drop it off at our office in the black drop box located outside the Courthouse near the south entrance or mail to:
Hardin County Board of Elections, One Courthouse Square, Suite 40, Kenton, OH  43326.

If you are in need of curbside service to return your absentee request or absentee ballot, please call our office at 419.674.2211 once you arrive, and staff will come out to your car to assist you.
