Registered voters in Ohio must confirm their identity when they vote in person.
If you are a registered voter but do not present an acceptable ID at the polling place, you may cast a provisional ballot.
Your ballot will count if you provide your Ohio driver’s license or state ID number OR the last four digits of your Social Security number. This information will be reviewed and verified by the board of elections.
You may also appear in person at the board of elections within seven days following Election Day to provide a qualifying form of identification.
If you have changed your name but have not yet updated your voter registration, you may vote a regular ballot rather than a provisional ballot as long as you have not moved to a new address outside of your voting precinct. You must provide to elections officials: proof of a legal name change such as a marriage license or a court order that includes your current and prior names. At your polling location or designated vote center, you will simply be asked to complete a change of name form (Secretary of State prescribed 10-L).
