Expanded Early Voting Hours Start Monday At Franklin County Board Of Elections
Starting Monday, Franklin County residents can get a little extra time to cast early voter ballots in-person at the board of elections office.
When early voting began on October 5, residents could vote in-person on weekdays between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. Now, they get two extra hours during the week starting Monday, until 7 p.m. each day.
Additionally, the Franklin County Board of Elections office, located at 1700 Morse Road, will be open at select times during the weekend and November 1:
- Saturday, October 30 from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.
- Sunday, October 31 from 1-5 p.m.
- Monday, November 1 from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m.
From now until Election day on November 2, residents can officially vote on an array of local school board and council candidates, along with ballot issues — such as a controversial green energy bill that Columbus city council members oppose.
Voters can also drop off completed ballots at the board's 24/7 ballot drop-box.
As of Friday, the board of elections has received over 25,000 ballots through either in-person ballot drop offs or mail-in ballots.
