DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) – Starting Wednesday, you can cast your ballot in person at any county Board of Elections. A growing number of voters are making their decisions before election day.

Back in 2012, 30 percent of voters cast their ballots early. This year they are expecting even more here at the Montgomery County Board of Elections.

For Montgomery County residents, if you are interested in early voting the only place you can do it is right here at the Board of Elections at 451 W Third Street in Dayton.

Come ready with your driver’s license number and the last 4 digits of your social security number. Those two pieces of information will get you inside the voting booth.

And if you’re worried about the wait times, officials say this year will be faster because of the new electronic ballots.

“We’re voting on the machines here at the board of elections,” Montgomery County Board of Elections Director said. “So I think the voters are really going to be excited about the process. It’s going to be quick, we’re going to get you in and we’re going to get you out very quickly.”
