Secretary of State Husted Enhances MyOhioVote.com Services With New Voter Search Tool
Deadline to update voter information for May Primary approaching

COLUMBUS – Secretary of State Jon Husted today announced the launch of an improved voter search tool as part of an ongoing effort to enhance the resources available to Ohio voters at MyOhioVote.com. The updated online search enables Ohioans to more easily check their voter registration information, including voting address and polling location, which previously had to be done using two separate online tools.

“As Ohio's elections team works to ensure a fair and secure elections process, voters have a responsibility to ensure they are properly registered and know where to vote,” Secretary Husted said. “This new tool will allow voters to easily check their information and know where to go to cast their ballots.”

The process by which a voter accesses the updated system has also been simplified. Voters now need only provide their first name, last name and county. Prior to this update, users were required to input information into several fields in order to access their information.

Once entered, a person will be able to review the information. Voters will see their voting address, legislative districts, polling place and precinct.

Secretary Husted is encouraging Ohio voters to use improved system to verify their information and update their address online using the Online Change of Address, if needed.

“Verifying and updating a person’s voting information has never been easier,” Secretary Husted said. “As more voters take advantage of these online tools, it will have a direct benefit on our state’s elections process by ensuring our voter rolls are more up-to-date and accurate.”

The online system is populated with information from Ohio’s 88 county boards of elections. It is important to note that boards may make a last minute change to a person’s polling place that would not be reflected online, but voters would be notified by mail. Questions about information contained in the online system should be directed to the county boards of elections. 

The deadline to update voter information or register to vote in time to participate in the upcoming May 7th primary is Monday, April 8, 2013.
