Election Information

2024 General Election

The 2024 General Election will take place on Tuesday 5 November 2024. Information about candidates and issues on the ballot in your area will be available at VOTE411.

CHECK YOUR POLLING LOCATION at your County Board of Elections (BOE) website: Montgomery County, Greene County.

CHECK YOUR REGISTRATION AND PRECINCT LOCATION at VoteOhio.gov: Check your registration to make sure it’s up to date and that you know your voting precinct. NOTE: If you did not vote in the last election, this should be your first step.

VOTING BY ABSENTEE BALLOT: Once you have verified your registration, the Ohio League of Women Voters and other voting rights groups suggest you request an absentee ballot immediately. Print an absentee ballot request at VoteOhio.Gov. Follow the directions carefully. The date of the election is 5 November 2024, and it is a GENERAL ELECTION. Remember to sign and date and mail it to your BOE. Include a telephone number or email address in case there is a question about your application. Since this is a GENERAL ELECTION, you do not need to declare a party affiliation.

You may monitor your request at VoteOhio.Gov by scrolling down to My Election and clicking on Track My Ballot. Double-click on your county and fill in your name.

NOTE: If you request an absentee ballot but then show up at the polls or the BoE to vote in person on election day, you will be required to file a provisional ballot

VOTING IN PERSON: The following documents are acceptable forms of ID for voting:

  • Photo ID for voting as long as the ID is not expired and includes the individual’s name and photograph;
  • • Ohio driver’s license, state ID card, or interim ID form issued by the Bureau of Motor Vehicles (“BMV”).
    • This includes a commercial driver’s license, motorcycle operator’s license, probationary or restricted license, or temporary instruction permit.
    • An interim identification form is a BMV document issued to a person who has just applied for a driver’s license or state ID card, to use until the permanent card arrives in the mail;
  • • U.S. passport or passport card; or
  • • U.S. military ID card, Ohio National Guard ID card, or U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs ID card (collectively referenced in this Directive as “military ID”).

Note: A suspended driver’s license that is not expired may still be used as photo identification for voting.

Voters without ID may still cast a provisional ballot when they appear in person to vote. Those voters will have four days after Election Day to appear at the board of elections office to show photo ID (except in the case of a religious objector). Confusing? Check out this handy guide to Voter ID information in plain language.
