Map: Ohio Polling Locations Affected by Coronavirus
Many Ohioans have been assigned a new polling location for the March 17 primary election, and voters are urged to use the state’s search tool to determine their correct polling place.
The change to nearly 150 polling locations is due to recent coronavirus concerns. The locations are within nursing homes, and Secretary of State Frank LaRose announced the changes in order to limit public contact with vulnerable senior citizens.
The changes include 16 locations in Franklin County. There are others scattered in rural and small-town areas throughout the state.

The Ohio Secretary of State’s office has been updating the list of affected locations on a new website, ohiosos.gov/coronafacts.
LaRose is urging Ohio voters to either vote early or search for their polling location to determine exactly where they should vote on March 17.
