Four Ohio counties announced Tuesday they would move 30 primary polling locations out of senior living facilities to protect residents from COVID-19, which is most dangerous to people middle-aged and older.
Notices will be mailed to voters affected by the change, and signs outside the original polling places will direct voters to the new locations on Election Day. Election officials urged anyone concerned about their own health to vote early or request an absentee ballot by March 14. Any absentee ballot postmarked on or before March 17 will be counted in the election, even if it arrives after the board of elections has closed.
