Heading introducing Trumbull County Board of Elections

 

Voting Procedure

NOTICE TO ALL VOTERS: Identification Requirements
R.C. 3503.28(A)(1)(6)
Voters must bring identification to the polls in order to verify identity. Identification may include a current and valid photo identification, a military identification that shows the voter’s name and current address, or a copy of a current utility bill, bank statement, government check, paycheck, or other government document, other than this reminder or a voter registration notification, that shows the voter’s name and current address. Voters who do not provide one of these documents will still be able to vote by providing the last four digits of the voter’s social security number and by casting a provisional ballot. Voters who do not have any of the above forms of identification, including a social security number, will still be able to vote by signing an affirmation swearing to the voter’s identity under penalty of election falsification and by casting a provisional ballot.

WHERE DO I VOTE?
You cast your ballot at your precinct’s designated polling place, unless you vote a provisional ballot.  If you are in doubt as to the location of this polling place, you may click HERE, our polling location finder, or contact The Trumbull County Board of Elections at (330) 369-4050.

HOW DO I VOTE?
Instructions for casting a ballot are posted in each polling place.  If you are unsure of the correct procedure to cast your ballot or if you have incorrectly marked your ballot, the election officials at your precinct will provide you with instructions.

MAY A VOTER RECEIVE ASSISTANCE IN VOTING?
A voter with a physical or mental disability or who is unable to read or write may be assisted by anyone of the voter's choice, except a candidate whose candidacy is being voted on in that precinct, an employer or his/her agent, or an officer or agent of the voter's union.  The voter may be assisted by two poll workers of opposite political parties.  No one who assists a voter may disclose any information about how that person voted.

HOW DO I ESTABLISH WHICH PARTY'S BALLOT I AM ENTITLED TO VOTE?
If you are a new voter, you may vote the primary ballot of any political party.  If you voted the primary ballot of a political party last primary election, and this year you want to vote the ballot of another party, you change your affiliation by signing a statement to that effect when you vote.

MAY I VOTE ON BALLOT ISSUES AT A PRIMARY ELECTION WITHOUT DECLARING MY POLITICS?
Yes.  You may vote on issues without voting for the candidates of a political party by requesting an issues-only ballot.
