Shielding Our Protectors

Secretary of State Jon HustedYou 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, parole officers, probation officers, bailiffs, prosecuting attorneys, assistant prosecuting attorneys, correctional employees, youth services employees, firefighters, EMTs, or investigators of the Bureau of Criminal Identification and Investigation may redact their home addresses from public databases, including Ohio’s online 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.



Jon Husted

Ohio Secretary of State
