Secretary of State Husted: Include Updating Voter Registration Information as Part of Daylight Saving Checklist

Columbus – Ohio Secretary of State Jon Husted’s office is urging Ohio voters to plan ahead when they “spring forward” this Sunday, March 10, 2013 as part of Daylight Saving Time.

When they change their clocks and smoke detector batteries, all Ohioans should also check their voter registrations and change their addresses (if necessary). All of this can be done via Secretary Husted’s one-stop voter information website at www.MyOhioVote.com

This five-minute task will ensure voters can participate in this year’s local elections with ease. 

Secretary Husted noted the most common reason Ohio voters are required to vote a provisional ballot rather than a regular ballot is because they have moved and not updated their address for voting purposes. 

“Planning ahead always makes for a smoother Election Day and a better experience for voters, “Secretary Husted said. “By ensuring their information at the board of elections is up to date now, voters can request an absentee ballot to vote by mail or go to the polls throughout the year without any hassle.”

Key Dates & Deadlines in 2013

Ohio voters planning to go to the polls to vote in the May 7, 2013 Primary Election should have their voting information updated no later than voter registration deadline on April 8, 2013.

The General Election will take place on November 5, 2013, and some communities may choose to place local issues on the ballot this summer as part of the August 6, 2013 Special Election.

For more information about what’s on the ballot or to download a voter registration form, visit www.MyOhioVote.com.
