The deadline to apply for absentee ballots was noon on Saturday.

Only voters with disabilities and those who cannot receive mail qualify to vote in-person on Tuesday. Secretary of State Frank LaRose says absentee voters who applied before the deadline but have not yet received their ballots are also permitted to vote on Election Day with a provisional ballot.
