You must present a valid ID in order to vote in-person. In early 2023, Ohio changed the types of valid ID to vote in-person. The updated list now includes the following: an Ohio ID, a US passport, a military ID, and more. For a list of the types of ID that you can use to vote in-person in Ohio, click here.
Voters without a valid Ohio ID can vote by mail with the last four digits of their Social Security Number as identification. To learn more about voting by mail and to request your absentee ballot, click here.
That doesn’t matter! The name and address on your ID are the only things that must match the information on the voter roll. You are still allowed to vote.
As mentioned above, you cannot be denied the right to vote because an ID does not match your appearance. Resources are available from the National Center for Transgender Equality’s Voting While Trans Guide and from the ACLU of Ohio.
Out-of-state college students, who meet Ohio’s residency requirements, are still allowed to register to vote in Ohio. More information on college students’ voting rights is available from Rock The Vote.
Every Election Day, Disability Rights Ohio operates a voter protection hotline. If you have a disability and encounter an issue on Election Day, call 800-282-9181.
The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) requires all polling places for federal elections to be fully accessible to voters with disabilities. More information on the rights of voters with disabilities is available from the ACLU. Additional resources related to accessibility are available from the Secretary of State’s office.
