BOE: Masks Required, But No One Will Be Turned Away

Ohio Secretary of State Frank LaRose has announced that voters will be required to wear a mask if voting in person this fall.

However, Jody Beall O’Brien, Republican Director of the Hancock County Board of Elections says people who don’t want to wear a mask will not be turned away.



The deadline to register to vote in the November 3rd Presidential election is October 5th, and Jody says in-person early voting at the Hancock County Board of Elections will begin the following day.

She says a lot of people have been requesting an absentee ballot, and is anticipating that about half of voters will cast their ballot early in person or via absentee ballot.
