With the general election set for Nov. 8, the Oct. 11 deadline to register to vote in Ohio is fast approaching. State residents have the option to either register online, through mail or in-person.

If registering by mail, voters can download and print out the Ohio state voter registration form off the Ohio Secretary of State’s website, or request to have one sent by mail.

For Portage County residents, forms should be sent to the county’s board of elections office in Ravenna. All applications should be postmarked by Oct. 11 at the latest, and be received by no later than noon on Nov. 5.

To register in-person, residents can go to the Portage County’s Board of Elections office, the Office of the Registrar, or any Deputy Registrar of the Ohio Bureau of Motor Vehicles. In Kent, the Kent Free Library and Theodore Roosevelt High School also offer registration areas.
