MAKE SURE YOUR VOICE IS HEARD
According to Ohio’s county boards of elections, the registrations listed above have been inactive for a period of at least 4-6 years1 and have failed to respond to notices mailed since 2018 or engage in any voter activity.
In order to maintain accurate and secure voter rolls, and in accordance with both federal and state law, if a voter does not vote, update or confirm their registration, or engage in any voter activity that demonstrates their registration information is still valid, county boards of elections are required to remove that registration from the rolls.
NO REGISTRATIONS WILL BE REMOVED BEFORE THE 2022 PRIMARY ELECTION
Registrations found via the searchable database may be cancelled after the Primary Election unless an impacted voter takes one of the following actions:
- Vote in the Primary Election in 2022;
- Engage in voter activity, such as registering to vote, updating or confirming their address with a board of elections or the BMV, submitting an absentee ballot application, or signing a candidate or issue petition that is verified by a board of elections; or
- Confirm or update your voter registration, either online at VoteOhio.gov, by mail, or in-person.
This searchable database is part of an effort to make sure every eligible Ohioan who appears on this list will remain registered.
If your registration is cancelled after the 2022 Primary Election, you may register again at any time. If you have questions about this list, please 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 2022-23. As of March 7, 2022, this list contains data from all county boards of elections. The data is current as of the date it was generated and depicts the inactive registrations submitted to the Ohio Secretary of State’s office. The boards of elections generated this data no earlier than February 21, 2022 and no later than February 24, 2022. This published list is static. However, registrations that engage in voter activity after the date their respective board of elections generated this list, as stated above, will be moved to active status in the boards of elections’ voter registration database before any cancellations occur. Please note that activity will not appear on this published list.
Following the Primary Election, this list will be replaced with the final list of registrations that neither voted, engaged in voter-initiated activity or updated or confirmed their voter registration.
To be clear, the list 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.
Due to events outside of our Office’s control regarding redistricting, this timeline is subject to change. Updated information will be provided as soon as possible if the timeline does change. For questions about the status of your registration, please contact your county board of elections at OhioSoS.gov/boards.
