from Board of Elections
Figures released by the board of elections today show nearly 9,000 Franklin County voters have updated their voting addresses since 214,000 were notified in June because records showed they had moved or had not voted in the past two years.
The mailings are required under the National Voter Registration Act better known as the "Motor Voter" law to ensure information on registered voters is up to date and that registration is canceled for others no longer eligible to vote.
The latest totals from last month's mailing show 8,886 updating an address in Franklin County. Another 1,230 registrations were canceled for voters who have moved outside Ohio. Nearly 818,000 are registered countywide.
Those contacted have two ways to update their registration - by mail with a postage paid envelope they received in last month's mailing or online at www.MyOhioVote.com.
Voters have four years to respond before registrations are canceled, but are urged to update their information as soon as possible to ensure they remain eligible to cast a ballot in Franklin County.
Voters who need further information should contact the board of elections at (614) 525-3100.
