How Do Ohio Voters Check to See if They Are Registered?

If potential voters are not sure that they are registered, or wish to confirm that they are, they must phone or visit the county board of elections in which they live. The local board of elections will have a list of who is registered to vote in that county. The Ohio Secretary of State will not have specific voter information. Each county's board of elections will be listed in the phone book under "Government Offices – County."

Here is a list of the most populous Ohio county boards of election with phone numbers and web site. In some cases, registration can be checked online.
