Rep. Hicks-Hudson Highlights Early Voting Options
Lawmaker reminds voters they can vote early using only the last four digits of their Social Security Number
 
 

State Rep. Paula Hicks-Hudson (D-Toledo) today released a statement about Early Voting. Law changes meant to expand options for in-person Early Voting are causing confusion in the Toledo community. Rep. Hicks-Hudson sent a letter to the Board of Elections two months ago when reports of misinformation surfaced during primary voting.


“Early voters can show up and vote early just like they have for the last decade,” said Rep. Hicks-Hudson. “All you need if to know the last four digits of your Social Security Number. Just ask the election officials for a ballot application and you’ll be given a form to fill out before you get your ballot.”


A law that took effect earlier this year expanded the identification options for in-person early voters. But some have interpreted the law as limiting those options instead. Voters can still vote early in person just like mail voters by completing a ballot application with five items: their name, address, birth date, ID or Social Security number, and signature.


On Election Day, voters have to show a valid form of voter identification to vote a regular ballot. Those without a proper form of voter identification may vote a provisional ballot on Election Day, which will count if they provide the same five items on the paperwork – name, address, birth date, ID or Social Security number, and signature – and are in the correct location for the voter’s precinct.


Remaining in-person Early Voting options at the Lucas County Board of Elections include:


Wednesday, Oct. 30 – Friday, Nov. 1, 8 a.m. – 7 p.m.


Saturday, Nov. 2, 8 a.m. - 4 p.m.


Sunday, Nov. 3, 1 p.m. – 5 p.m.


Monday, Nov. 4, 8 a.m. – 2 p.m.


ELECTION DAY: 6:30 a.m. – 7:30 p.m.
