Statement on Unsolicited Applications

We’ve received multiple calls and emails expressing concerns over mailings of absentee application postcards to voters. These do not come from the Geauga County Board of Elections. We have no control over who mails what to voters. We will fulfill any completed applications which comply with the requirements of Ohio Revised Code 3509.03.

If you are unhappy with having received an unsolicited application, we suggest not using it, instead printing an application from our website, or calling us at 440-279-2030 to request an application.
