Ohio ballot applications are now online

With the primary election delayed due to the coronavirus pandemic, the Lawrence County Board of Elections is reminding voters that the new date for the election is April 28 and to contain the spread of COVID-19, the State of Ohio is doing voting by mail only this time.

Due to public health concerns, the Lawrence County Courthouse is closed to the public, except by appointment, so voters must complete an application before the board can mail out a ballot.

The board is getting a high number of phone calls regarding getting an application and is recommending going online at www.ohioboe.gov/lawrence to get an application, although you can still call to get an application.

Applications can be picked up at the courthouse security station at the Fifth Street entrance.

If you have already voted, there is no need to submit another application. All ballots that were cast in March have been secured and will be counted with all ballots on April 28.
