Ready to make your voice heard, Cincinnati? Today’s the final day to register to vote in time for the upcoming mayoral primary.

The deadline for voter registration is 30 days prior to an election in Hamilton County. Because Cincinnati’s mayoral primary is scheduled for May 4, the deadline to register to vote is today, April 5.

Voters have three options to register to vote or to update voter information: mail, in person and online.

To register online, complete the steps at Ohio’s Secretary of State website.

To register in person, visit an approved location and ask for a voter registration form. Locations include the Hamilton County Board of Elections, public libraries, public high schools and more. Find a list of locations on the Board of Elections website.

To register by mail, download a voter registration form and send it to Hamilton County Board of Elections, 4700 Smith Road, Cincinnati, OH 45212-9002. Mailed registrations must be postmarked by today, so you should drop off your addressed packet inside a post office instead of mailing it from your home.

Find voter registration forms and complete voting information on the Board of Elections website.

The Cincinnati mayoral election is scheduled for Nov. 2 and will be between the top two vote-getters from the May 4 primary. Current mayor John Cranley has served since 2013 and will not run again due to term limits. Read CityBeat’s previous 2021 mayoral election coverage.
