COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Health safety guidelines that Ohio’s elections chief sent to county boards Wednesday recommend but do not mandate mask-wearing and other preventive measures for those voting in person this fall.
Secretary of State Frank LaRose said those voters who choose not to wear a mask will be given options, including voting outside or using the curbside option.
He urged those voting by mail to request a ballot no later than Oct. 27, a week ahead of Election Day.
He also said poll workers are desperately needed.
The deadline to register to vote is Oct. 5. Early voting begins Oct. 6.
