Buchurim home for Yom Tov who are eligible to vote (will you be 18 at the time of the election?) can download the absentee ballot from and vote at yeshiva. They will mail you a ballot. If you are not already registered, you can turn in both forms at the same time. You must be registered to vote, of course. Anyone who is registered can request an absentee ballot and vote from home
This is a primary election. You will be asked to choose if you wish to vote as a Republican or Democrat. You will be listed under the party that you choose until another primary in which you request a different ballot You will then be asked to vote for which candidate in the party that you choose you would like to see run as the party’s candidate in November.
Does it make a difference? At the state level, the likely outcome in November will favor Republicans. So if you pull a Republican ballot, you will help decide who might best represent our state at that time. Cuyahoga County tends to exclusively elect Democrats in November making this the time to decide between those candidates for local and county wide offices.
