Changing address for voting now easier; Husted creates new online option

By Stephanie Warsmith Published: August 9, 2012

Changing your address for voting purposes is now a whole lot easier.

Ohio Secretary of State Jon Husted announced today a new Web feature -- www.myohiovote.com -- that will allow voters to update their voting address online. Voters who have moved are required to update their registrations with the new address 30 days prior to the election.

Husted said the online feature will save money because elections boards won't have to hand enter change-of-address information as much. He also hopes the addition will cut down on the state's number of provisional ballots, which mainly occur when people have moved and haven't updated their addresses.

The registration deadline for the Nov. 6 presidential election is Oct. 9.
