COLUMBUS, Ohio — Ohio voters may cast Tuesday primary ballots from the curb under order from Secretary of State Frank LaRose, the Journal-News reported Monday.

LaRose also directed county boards of elections to accept and process absentee ballot requests until 3 p.m. Tuesday, which will give Ohioans with concerns about coronavirus more options to vote.
