Join the Party! Vote in the March 15 Presidential Primary Election


Take advantage of your opportunity to join the political party of your choice by casting a ballot in the Presidential Primary Election on March 15, 2016. You may choose to vote an issues-only ballot if you prefer to be considered a nonpartisan voter.


Did you know?
In Ohio, the only method voters may utilize to establish or change their party affiliation is by voting in a partisan primary election. Last year more than 150,000 Democrats and nearly 27,000 Republicans lost their party affiliation because they did not vote in a Primary Election for more than two years. This makes voting the March 15th Election extremely important for people who want to be affiliated with a political party or re-establish their party affiliation.


Choosing Your Ballot

When you vote by mail, vote early at the Board of Elections, or vote on Election Day you will be asked to choose the type of ballot you wish to vote. The ballot choices include: Democrat, Republican, Green, Issues-only, and other.
