VOTER ELIGIBILITY

 

Voter Registration and Absentee Voting Information

 

You are qualified to vote if:

· You are a citizen of the United States.
· You are at least 18 years old on or before the day of the general election.
· You will be a resident of Ohio for at least 30 days immediately before the election in which you want to vote.
· You are not incarcerated (in prison) for a felony conviction.
· You have not been declared incompetent for voting purposes by a probate court.
· You have not been permanently disenfranchised for violations of the election laws.

How is residency determined?

By law, your residence is the place to which, whenever you are absent, you have the intent to return. If you continuously reside outside of Ohio for a period of four years or more, you are not a resident of this state for voter registration purposes, except if you are absent from Ohio because of federal or state government employment, including military service. Leaving for temporary purposes, such as school attendance, does not result in change of residence for voting purposes, unless you register in the area where you are currently residing.

Do I declare my politics when I register?

No. Under Ohio law, your party affiliation is determined by the ballot you vote in a primary election.

Can a student a student vote from his/her school address?

Yes, if the student regards that place as his/her residence and registers to vote. Otherwise the student must vote in his/her home community or by Absentee Ballot if he/she is registered there.

DOES EVERYONE HAVE TO BE REGISTERED?

WHAT IF I MOVE OR CHANGE MY NAME? 

If you are now registered and move within the state or the same county or changed your name, you must report the change to the board of elections by completing a voter registration at the locations stated above or by mail.

If you do not report the change by the 30th day before an election, please read “Exceptions” below.

Exceptions: If you have moved within Champaign County, you should vote at the polling place for your new address.

If you change your name and/or move from one precinct to another in your county, you may report the change and vote by appearing at the Board of Elections during the absentee voting period, or on election day you may go to the polling place in the precinct in which you reside, or go to the Board of Elections Office.
