My vote by mail ballot for the March 15, 2016 primary has been accepted by the Cuyahoga County Board of Election. It is so easy to do that I don’t understand why more people don’t take advantage of it. The request for a vote by mail ballot can be performed online on the CCBE website. The CCBE mails out the ballot and you simple fill it in just like you wold showing up in person at your polling place–and maybe waiting in line. Once you have filled in the ballot, you place it in a security envelope after filling in some questions, then you place that envelope in the mailing envelope. It does cost $0.71 in postage to mail in the ballot. I mailed in my ballot on Friday, Feb 19.
Below is an image of the online tracking result for my ballot. As you can see, it was received and accepted for counting on the next business day, Monday, Feb 22.
