Nobody will ever deprive the American people of the right to vote except the American people themselves and the only way they could do this is by not voting.

VOTE BY MAIL
Ohio has “no-excuse” absentee voting. This means anybody can vote by mail without special circumstances. First, you need to fill this form and mail it to the Medina County Board of elections at P.O. Box 506, Medina, OH 44258. The application must be received by noon on April 25th.
Your ballot must be returned to the Board of Elections either in-person or mailed (with a postmark showing it was mailed) by April 27th.
We encourage you to do this as soon as possible in light of the changing and dynamic circumstances. Once you receive your official ballot, complete it and get it back in the mail as soon as possible. The situation has already changed more than once, and the sooner you get it in, the sooner your vote counts.
None of this is ideal, I know. But together, we can still shape our democracy with our vote and stay healthy. It just will take a little longer.
WHAT TO VOTE FOR?
This election is a Primary and an Election. Since this is a Primary, you will have a choice of ballots: Democratic, Republican and for some precincts Issues Only. Be sure to ask for the Democratic ballot! Most people know that in a Primary you are not really electing new officials. Instead you are choosing who you want to see on the ballot in the November General Election.
However, this is a special election because you will also get to vote to elect your representative for your precinct to the Medina County Democratic Central Committee. Votes cast for Democratic Central Committee candidates will determine who is elected to that office. There is no vote for this position in November.
