Shielding Our Protectors in Ohio

Shielding Our Protectors

As public safety professionals, it is your right 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, federal law enforcement 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 and submit your form (provided by the Ohio Attorney General's Office - click 'Request to Redact Address') to your county board of elections.
