This is the most important election of our lifetime. I’m proud to report that as of today, we have one of the highest voting records in the county! More than 55-percent of Beachwood residents have requested absentee ballots and more than 42-percent of all Beachwood voters have returned them. If you are among the 42-percent, check the Board of Elections (BOE) website to ensure your ballot is marked “Approved for Counting.”
With less than a week to go, I urge everyone to return absentee ballots by mail no later than today, or make a plan to drop it at the Board of Elections, or vote early in person.
Whatever your situation, MAKE A PLAN and make sure your vote gets counted. Here’s what you can do:
If you have any questions, please consult the Cuyahoga County BOE website at 443vote.com or call 216-443-8683 (VOTE). If you requested an absentee ballot and it has not arrived, or you want to vote in person, you can still vote in person at the BOE up to November 2, or at your polling place on Election Day. Make sure you have proper ID: to vote in person at the BOE you need a driver’s license or last four digits of your Social Security number. To vote at the local polling place on Election Day you need a driver’s license, state ID, utility bill with current address or other acceptable identification with current address. The BOE website has the full list.
When the polls are closed, the results are in and your candidate didn’t win, please don’t be the person who couldn’t find time to vote, was too confused or thought everything was taken care of. It’s not too late to make absolutely certain your vote will count. Deliver your absentee ballot to the ballot drop box. Verify that your absentee ballot has been approved. Correct mistakes if they exist. Vote at the BOE in person or vote local. Make sure you have reliable transportation and proper ID. This election may be decided by a few thousands votes across the state. TO AVOID REGRETS LATER, JUST GET OUT AND VOTE NOW!
