Important Voter Information
 
For the first time ever with the implementation of Senate Bill 63,  Ohioans are now able to register to vote online. I am proud to say that Ohio’s election process will be more convenient and less expensive as a result. 


This Bill took effect on January 1st, 2017 where Ohio’s new online voter registration system allows Ohioans with access to the internet to submit their new voter registrations or update their voting address online at www.myohiovote.com.  To complete the voter registration online, voters must provide their name, address, date of birth, the last four digits of their social security number, and an Ohio driver’s license or state ID card number. Those who prefer using the hardcopy method still are able to register  to vote by mail or in-person at their local Board of Elections office. 




After submitting the required information, the system immediately verifies the voter’s eligibility prior to accepting the registration. The Ohio Secretary of State is required to annually review the database to ensure that there are no non-U.S. citizens registered to vote.  This new system is based on a successful model used in other states such as Arizona, which  has used a similar electronic registration arrangement for over a decade with zero reports of security breaches or voter fraud. 




Paper registration forms require significantly more processing, which translates to increased administrative fees. Hopefully, the new system will save Ohio's taxpayers millions of dollars in reduced administrative costs. It has been calculated that online registration saves an average of between $0.50 and $2.34 per registration. 




The new system helps to streamline an outdated process, allowing Ohioans easier access to submit and update their voter registration information. With changing times this will hopefully encourage younger people to register,  participate in our electoral process and exercise their constitutional right.Please visit www.myohiovote.com for more information.
