Oct. 9 is deadline to register to vote in November election

Voters have many important decisions to make in the Nov. 6 General Election. There are federal, state, county and judicial candidates on the ballot. There will also be state and local issues to be decided by voters.

The Cuyahoga County Board of Elections advises people to be prepared to vote by taking a few simple steps: check their registration status and then select their voting method.

Voters should check their voting information to make sure they are registered at their current address. The deadline to register and/or update voter registrations is on or before Tuesday, Oct. 9, at 9:00 p.m. Voter registration is now available online at 443vote.com. Registration cards are available at all public libraries.

Early voting is available from Oct. 10 through Nov. 5 at the Board of Elections located at 2925 Euclid Avenue, Cleveland. Early voting hours are posted on the Board’s website.

Voters may also submit Vote by Mail ballot applications if they wish to vote from home. To request an application, visit 443vote.com, or call 216-443-VOTE (8683). Vote by Mail ballot applications are also available at all public libraries.

If voters plan to cast a ballot on Election Day they need to bring identification and they may confirm their polling location online. The polls are open from 6:30 a.m. to 7:30 p.m.

The Board is seeking thousands of poll workers to assist voters on Election Day. Poll workers are paid up to $200 and may apply online or by calling the Election Officials Department at 216-443-3277.
