Happy New Year! Online Voter Registration Now Live in Ohio

As of January 1, 2017, Ohioans can now register to vote online. Ohio Secretary of State Jon Husted and team have been working to implement an online voter registration system since 2011.

“With the online registration system, voting will be more secure, easier and it will save a lot of money,” said Husted. “It is more secure because of the fact that we can do an instantaneous check on voters to make sure that they are eligible to vote in Ohio. It’s more convenient because voter registration will be right at your fingertips, as close as your computer or smartphone.”

Registering to vote online will require a driver’s license or a state-issued ID card and the voter’s name, date of birth and last four digits of their Social Security number. The information submitted will be checked against records with the Ohio Bureau of Motor Vehicles. Individuals who do not have the required information may still register to vote on paper.

Ohio joins 31 other states plus the District of Columbia in offering online voter registration.
