It’s election season in central Ohio, and more than 120 races are on the ballot across the region, from township trustee to the special election for a U.S. House seat.

Ahead of the Nov. 2 election, we have compiled a guide to show you what’s on your ballot and familiarize you with the candidates and issues you will get the opportunity to select. 

The voter guide is a partnership of The Columbus Dispatch, ThisWeek Newspapers, WBNS-TV (Channel 10), The Newark Advocate and The Lancaster Eagle Gazette

To see your ballot, enter your address in the box below and hit “Get started.” We do not collect your address or any selections made within the voter guide.

How to vote by mail in Ohio

If you want to vote by mail, you must request a ballot, which can be done one of three ways.

  • Fill out an application online at voteohio.gov, print that application and mail it to your county board of elections.
  • Call your board of elections and request that an application be mailed to you. 
  • Make your own application by writing: “I’m a qualified elector and I’m requesting an absentee ballot for the Nov. 2, 2021 election.” You must include information such as your full name, date of birth, county and address where you are registered to vote. A full list is available online at voteohio.gov. 

Once you have received your ballot and filled it out, you can mail it to your county board of elections by Nov. 1 or drop it off at your county board of elections through 7:30 p.m. Nov. 2 – either inside the building or in a dropbox.
