Ohio has semi-open primaries — any Ohioan can vote for Bernie Sanders.
You must have been registered to vote by Tuesday, February 16th in Ohio.
You must request a Democratic primary ballot at the polling place or in your absentee ballot application. If you voted via Republican ballot in the last general election, the poll worker will automatically give you a Republican ballot, unless you request a Democratic ballot. Make sure you have your desired party ballot before you head to the voting machine.
Ohioans can vote before the March 15 primary, either in person or by mail-in absentee ballot, beginning February 17, 2016. Check with your local elections board to learn more about early in-person voting times and locations. Click here to request a mail-in absentee ballot.
If you will be 18 years old by November 8, 2016, you can vote for Bernie. Ohio Secretary of State Jon Husted tried to change the rules to prevent 17-year-olds who will be 18 by the general election from voting, but a state court has ruled that 17-year-olds are eligible to vote in the presidential primary.

If you are a college student not living in your home state, you can vote for Bernie in either your home state or in the state in which you are attending school!
If you are a military voter or a United States citizen living abroad, you are able to request a ballot here.
