You may have received a letter asking you cancel your Ohio Voter Registration because records indicate you may have moved out of Ohio.

Federal and state law requires the State of Ohio to review voter registration records annually. Because records indicate that you may no longer reside in Ohio, you may need to cancel your Ohio voter registration using the Ohio Voter Registration Cancellation form.

Accurate and up-to-date voter registration rolls are essential to maintain the integrity of elections in every state. Complete the form you received in the mail or the PDF linked above and promptly return it only if one or more of the following are true:

  • You moved from Ohio to another state with the intention of making that state your residence;
  • You moved from Ohio to another state and while there voted in an election;
  • You have continuously made your residence outside of Ohio for a period of four years or more, notwithstanding the fact that you may entertain an intention to return at some future time, unless you left to engage in the service of the United States government or the State of Ohio.

If you cancel your Ohio voter registration and later return to Ohio and have the qualifications of a voter, you may complete a voter registration application to become a registered voter in Ohio again. You must be registered by October 4, 2021, in order to vote in Ohio in the November 2021 General Election.

To find information on how to register to vote in another state, visit the U.S. Election Assistance Commission’s website: EAC.gov/voters.

If you have misplaced or damaged your letter, you may download, fill out, and return the Voter Registration Cancellation Form to your former Ohio county board of elections.
