OK below is the ID requirements for absentee ballet in Ohio:
What is the application process for obtaining an absentee ballot?
Ohio law provides separate application processes for different classifications of absentee voters (militia, armed services, overseas, etc.). In all
cases, absentee ballots must be applied for in writing. If you are properly registered to vote, you must submit your written request to the board of
elections of the county in which your voting residence is located. Your request must contain certain information (described in the following sections)
and your original signature. You may, but are not required to, use an application form prescribed by the Ohio Secretary of State. Please click here to
download an application form.
If you are not an active duty member of Ohio's organized militia (including the Ohio Air National Guard, Ohio Army National Guard, Ohio Naval
Militia, and Ohio Military Reserve), an active duty member of the U.S. armed services serving outside of Ohio, or a U.S. citizen residing outside of
the U.S., you are considered a "regular" absentee voter for the purpose of this guide.
Regular absentee voters
If you are a regular absentee voter, you may use the application form prescribed by the Secretary of State (11-A) to apply for your absentee ballot.
If you choose not to use the prescribed form, your written application need not be in any particular format, but it must contain all of the following
1. Your name;
2. Your signature;
3. The address at which you are registered to vote;
4. Your date of birth;
5. One of the following items showing proof of your identification:
1. Your Ohio driver's license number; or
2. The last four digits of your Social Security number; or
3. A copy of your current and valid photo identification, military identification; or a current (within the last 12 months) utility bill
(including cell phone bill), bank statement, government check, paycheck, or other government document that shows your name and current address
(including from a public college or university).
(Note: You cannot use a notice that the board of elections mailed to you as proof of identification.);
6. A statement identifying the election for which you are requesting an absentee voter's ballot;
7. A statement that you are a qualified elector;
8. If the request is for a partisan primary election ballot, your political party affiliation; and
