COLUMBUS, Ohio -- Military and overseas ballots are now available for Ohio's special election on Aug. 8.

Overseas voters can visit to download a federal post card application, register to vote and request an absentee ballot. The site also allows voters to track the status of their mailed ballots and to sign up for election reminders by email or social media.
