15. Ohio voting requirements change-New regulations require ID at polls

Ohio voting requirements change
New regulations require ID at polls
BY JENNIE KEY | COMMUNITY PRESS EDITOR
Be prepared to identify yourself at the polls in November.

John Williams, the director of the Hamilton County Board of Elections, said Ohio law now requires all voters in Ohio to verify their identity before casting a regular ballot.

"The August special election was the first time the identification requirement was in force," Williams said. "There were few problems."


Williams said the board of elections has sent letters to more than 560,000 registered voters in Hamilton County, and plans to have inserts in utility bills before the elections reminding voters of the new requirement fro identification.

"We are trying to get the word out to people," he said.

There were also changes in the law regarding absentee ballots.

According to Sally Krisel, absentee voting administrator, any Ohio registered voter may now vote by mail.
