You are qualified to vote if:

  • You are a citizen of the United States
  • You are at least 18 years old on or before the day of the general election. If you will be 18 on or before the general election, you may vote in the primary election for candidates, but you cannot vote on issues until you are 18.
  • You will be a resident of Ohio for at least 30 days immediately before the election
  • You are not incarcerated (in prison) for a felony conviction under the laws of the United States, this state or any other state of the United States
  • You have not been declared incompetent for voting purposes by a probate court
  • You are registered to vote in Ohio at least 30 consecutive days before the election

How is residency determined?

By law, your residence is the place in which your habitation is fixed and to which, whenever you are absent, you have the intention to return. If you continuously reside outside of Ohio for a period of four years or more, you are not a resident of this state for voter registration purposes, except if you are absent from Ohio because of federal or state government employment, including military service.

Can a student vote from his/her school address?

Yes, if the student’s school address qualifies as the student’s voting residence, discussed in the previous paragraph. Otherwise, the student must vote in his/her home community or request an absentee ballot be sent to them (Absentee Voting Page), if registered there.
