Can I vote if I have a record?

I am a college student. Where do I register to vote?

Students who lived in Ohio before moving elsewhere to attend school, and who wish to establish or keep their Ohio voting residency (i.e., at their parents’ Ohio address), should have no problem doing so unless they have already registered to vote in another state. Students attending school in Ohio should be able to register and vote at their school address if they have the intent to make their school address their permanent home, Ohio law defines residency as where your home is “fixed” and where you have an “intention of returning.” A place does not become your residence unless you intend to make it your “permanent” home. The word “permanent” does not require that you plan to live in Ohio forever; it is an intention that at the time of voting, your school community is your permanent home.

Will I need ID?

To register to vote in Ohio you should provide one of the following:
  • Your Ohio Driver's License Number
  • Your Ohio ID Number
  • Last Four Digits of your Social Security Number
In Ohio, you need to show a current, valid ID to vote. Your ID must include your name (which must substantially conform to your name as it appears in the poll list), photo, address, and expiration date that has not passed. You may use ID from this list:
  • Valid Ohio Driver's License
