Tuesday is National Voter Registration Day

COLUMBUS – Ohio Secretary of State Jon Husted is reminding Ohioans there is still time to register to vote in the November General Election. The Secretary of State’s Office will be holding regional events across Ohio on Tuesday, September 25, in conjunction with National Voter Registration Day.

“Every election matters and every vote counts,” said Secretary Husted. “In November, Ohioans will head to the polls to decide a number of statewide and local issues that will shape the future of the Buckeye State. I want everyone to know we have made it easier and more convenient to register to vote and cast a ballot in Ohio elections. By raising awareness, I hope more eligible Ohioans take a moment to register so they can have their voices heard.”

The voter registration deadline for the upcoming November 6 General Election is just two weeks away on October 9. Voters may visit to register online or update an existing registration. Voter registration forms can also be printed from or obtained from a local library or county board of elections.

Since launching online voter registration in January 2017, more than 38,000 Ohioans have conveniently registered online. The online voter registration system is also more secure, more accurate and less costly than paper registration. Additionally, in 2012, Secretary Husted launched an online change of address tool. This has proven to be a popular option among voters looking to keep their registrations accurate and up-to-date, as more than 552,000 voters have updated their registration online.
