Voter Identification Law

All voters must now show I.D. at the polls before they are allowed to vote a regular ballot. Acceptable identification includes:

  • Valid Ohio Driver's License
  • Valid State issued photo I.D.
  • Military I.D.
  • Copy of a current utility bill, bank statement, government check, or other government document showing the voter’s name and address. Must match voter registration record.
Please note: voter registration acknowledgement or notification is not an acceptable form of identification. Voters who do not provide one of these documents will still be able to vote by providing the last four digits of the voter’s social security number and by casting a provisional ballot.

Voters who do not have any of the above forms of identification, including a social security number, will still be able to vote by signing an affirmation statement swearing to the voter’s identity under penalty of election falsification and by casting a provisional ballot.
