With harsh cold and snow forecast for much of the state in the next few days, officials in Ohio’s Department of Aging are urging precautions for older people who could be at increased risk of weather-related problems.
Husted: No In-Person Early Voting On Weekend Before Election
Ohio’s elections chief says early voting will not be allowed at county elections boards on the weekend before the Nov. 8 election.
Secretary of State Jon Husted has issued an advisory saying voters who want to cast an absentee ballot in person before Election Day will have to do it at their local elections office by 6 p.m. on Nov. 4.
A group of Democratic lawmakers had asked the Republican Husted to lengthen early voting
because the Friday cutoff is part of an election law that’s now on hold. But Husted says the early voting deadline also was in another new law that will be taking effect before the election.
