On August 28th, Secretary of State Frank LaRose released the Registration Readiness website -- providing Ohioans the opportunity to review voter registrations at risk of cancellation following the 2020 General Election. The original list of 115,816 inactive registrations were provided 3.5 months worth of notice to restore their registration status to fully active by voting in the 2020 general election, updating or confirming their registration online or in-person, responding to a mailing from their county board of elections, or any other qualifying voting activity.
According to Ohio’s county boards of elections and despite the significant amount of time and opportunity to re-activate a registration, the registrations on the list below remain abandoned. Registrations which continue to be abandoned and inactive through December 7th, 2020 will be removed by the respective county board of elections as required by state and federal law.
An abandoned registration that is cancelled may register again at any time. If you have questions about this list, please visit our FAQ , or contact your county board of elections at OhioSoS.gov/boards.
Note: Each county board of elections was required to populate and submit this data to the Secretary of State’s Office pursuant to Directive 2020-14. This list contains data from all county boards of elections and is current as of the date it was generated and depicts the inactive registrations submitted to the Ohio Secretary of State’s office.
This published list of data is static and will not be continuously updated to reflect renewed registrations. However, once your registration has been renewed and processed by your county board of elections, the county board will ensure you will not be removed from the voter rolls. For questions about the status of your registration, please contact your county board of elections at OhioSoS.gov/boards.
