In Ohio, anyone can vote early either by mail or in person at their county Board of Elections. Early voting is the best way to be sure that sickness, bad weather, or other unexpected events do not prevent voting.
Early Voting by Mail: The Ohio Democratic Party has an excellent voter web site with frequently asked questions about voting and a form to fill out to request an absentee ballot. http://www.fightforohio.com/voting-faq/ The ballot request form must be printed, signed, and mailed or brought to the Greene County Board of Elections, 651 Dayton Xenia Road, Xenia, OH 45385.
Absentee ballots will then be mailed to the voter and must be mailed back postmarked by Monday, Nov 1.
