Get ready to vote: registration deadline is Oct. 9

Voters in all of Cuyahoga County’s municipalities will cast ballots for President, U.S. Senate and members of Congress, Ohio Senate and the Ohio House of Representatives, County Prosecutor and County Council members, judicial candidates, State Board of Education seats, as well as local and state issues.

It is important for voters to be prepared to cast their ballots. The voter registration deadline is Oct. 9. Voters who have moved or changed their name since they last voted need to complete and return a new Voter Registration Card. After a voter has registered, they will receive a postcard that lists their ward, precinct and voting location.

To avoid lines on Election Day and to allow extra time to study the ballot, all registered voters may vote by mail. Vote by mail ballot applications are available at the Board of Elections website:, by calling the Board of Elections at 216-443-3298, and at all public libraries.

Voters who are interested in serving as poll workers may call 216-443-3277 or apply online at:
