SEARCH FOR POLLING LOCATIONS AND SAMPLE BALLOTS
If you are unable to locate your voter registration information but think you are registered to vote and you have not moved outside of your county of prior registration, you may be eligible to cast a provisional ballot during in-person absentee voting period at an appropriate early voting location or the county board of elections, or on Election Day at the correct polling place for your current address that may be counted.
We encourage you to check your registration status by contacting your local county board of elections. To find your polling place, please click here or call your county board of elections. Click here for a full listing of Boards of Elections.
Bring identification with you to the polls on Election Day
Voting locations conducting an election will be open from 6:30 a.m. until 7:30 p.m. Voters must bring identification to the polls in order to vote a regular ballot on Election Day. Acceptable forms of identification are:
- A current and valid photo identification (such as Ohio driver license card, state ID card, government ID). Photo identification must show name and current address (except that Ohio driver license or State ID card does not need to show current address if the address in the poll book is current); or
- A military identification that shows the voter's name (does not need to show address); or
- A copy of a current (within the last 12 months) utility bill (including cell phone bill), bank statement, paycheck, government check, or other government document that shows the voter's name and current address. Other government document includes license renewal and other notices, fishing and marine equipment operator’s license, court papers, or grade reports or transcripts.
- Students: A document that shows your name and current address from a public college or university or public community college, whether or not in Ohio.
Provisional ballots: Voters who do not provide one of these documents will still be able to vote by providing the last four digits of the voter's social security number and by casting a provisional ballot. Voters who do not have any of the above forms of identification, including a social security number, will still be able to vote by signing an affirmation swearing to the voter's identity under penalty of election falsification and by casting a provisional ballot. If identification is not provided at the time the provisional ballot is cast, the provisional voter may provide a valid form of identification in person at the Board of Elections during the 7 days following Election Day.
