COLUMBUS (WCMH) — The Franklin County Board of Elections has announced hours for its early-voting location at 1700 Morse Road, and it includes weekend times.

Through Election Day, which is Tuesday, early voting may be done:

  • Oct. 26-30: 8 a.m. to 7 p.m.
  • Saturday: 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.
  • Sunday: 1 to 5 p.m.
  • Monday: 8 a.m. to 2 p.m.

The board advises people to dress appropriately since the line often stretches outside the offices. Those in line by the closing of the day will be allowed to vote.

Figures released by the board of elections Tuesday show that more than 244,000 people have cast ballots early, either through in-person voting or through mail-in absentee ballots.

The board accepts mail-in ballots 24 hours a day at two drop boxes at its Morse Road location. Ballots can be returned until 7:30 p.m. Tuesday.

If mailed, absentee ballots must be postmarked by Monday and received no later than Friday, Nov. 13 to be counted.
