Shielding Our Protectors
You put your lives on the line for Ohioans’ safety every day.
As public safety professionals, I want to be sure you know your rights under the law to protect your personal information and families, while preserving your right to participate in Ohio elections.
Ohio law provides that peace officers, firefighters, emergency medical technicians, prosecuting attorneys, assistant prosecuting attorneys, correctional employees, parole officers, youth services employees and investigators from the Bureau of Criminal Investigation may redact their home addresses from public databases, including Ohio’s voter rolls.
If one of these is your chosen profession, simply follow the instructions on the left and submit your form to your county board of elections.
Thank you for all you do to keep us safe.
Ohio Secretary of State
Keep Your Voting Address Current
If you wish to register to vote or update your voting address, you may complete Ohio’s Voter Registration form and mail it to your county board of elections. Also, should you wish to update your voting address, you may be able to do so online.
Please remember that you must be registered to vote at your place of residence. You may not use your business address or a post office box number as your residential address for voting purposes.
If you need assistance or have questions, please feel free to call my office at (614) 466-7709 or e-mail us.
