CLEVELAND — The Cuyahoga County Board of Elections will start mailing out ballots next week to residents who requested them by sending in vote-by-mail applications.

According to the BOE, the ballots will be mailed out starting on Oct. 6, the same day in-person early voting starts.

“This is going to be a big day as nearly 300,000 people in Cuyahoga County are waiting for their ballots and are ready to vote,” said Anthony Perlatti, director of the board of elections. “I encourage voters to return their completed ballots as soon as possible to allow extra time for the Postal Service to deliver their ballots to the board of elections.”

Ballots can be dropped off at the BOE, located at 2925 Euclid Ave., Cleveland. A secure drop box can be found in the parking lot behind the building. It is accessible 24-hours a day.
