from Board of Elections
The Franklin County Board of Elections is reaching out to registered voters who haven't voted since 2013 or moved without updating their address. Letters will be mailed shortly to some 214,000 voters in an ongoing effort to keep voter registration records current. There are more than 814,000 voters registered countywide.
The mailing is required under the National Voter Registration Act of 1993 commonly referred to as the "Motor Voter" law. The law gives voters the chance to update their registrations and helps election officials identify individuals no longer eligible to vote.
The notice will be mailed to the latest voting address on file with the board of elections, to a new address if the voter has already listed one with the post office or a forwarding address if available. The mailing will include a postage paid return envelope so voters can submit a new address by mail. Voters also may update their address online at www.MyOhioVote.com.
Voters who return a notice to confirm their address will remain "active" voters. Those who do not respond will be listed as "inactive" and have their registration canceled in 2019 unless they update their address or vote in the meantime. Registrations will be canceled for other voters who provide a new and permanent address outside Ohio.
Voters who need additional information should contact the Franklin County Board of Elections at (614) 525-3100.
