1.6M Ohioans have asked for absentee ballot

COLUMBUS, OH (FOX19) -

With just two weeks to go before Election Day, more than 1.6 million Ohioans have either cast or requested an absentee ballot for the November 6 general election.

2012 General Election by the Numbers:

  • 7.9 million Ohioans are currently registered to vote.
  • Nearly 6.9 million absentee ballot applications were sent out to Ohio voters over the course of two statewide mailings. (Initial: 6,488,648; Supplemental: 394,094)
  • 246 total hours available to vote in person prior to Election Day in Ohio (including the last weekend).
  • 750 hours possible to vote absentee by mail during the absentee voting period.

Based on an informal survey of Ohio's 88 county boards of elections, as of Friday, October 19, 2012:

  • 1,427,805 voters have requested absentee ballots to vote by mail.
    • Of those, 618,861 absentee ballots by mail have been cast.
    • 18,681 military and overseas voters have requested ballots.
      • Of those, 5,176 military and overseas ballots have been cast.
      • 189,190 Ohioans have cast an absentee ballot in person at the board of elections or designated early vote center.

Voters choosing to vote in person prior to Election Day can check voting hours available to them by visiting www.MyOhioVote.com. All hours are uniform across the state of Ohio.

Voters choosing the vote by mail option have until Saturday, November 3, 2012, at noon to request an absentee ballot from their board of elections.

All are encouraged to do so sooner rather than later to allow more time for boards to process and send the ballot and for voters to complete and return them.
