Each voter must provide proof of identity at their polling place on Election Day.

The Ohio Secretary of State's Office says these are the acceptable forms of ID:

  • A military identification;
  • A photo identification that was issued by the United States government or the State of Ohio, that contains the voter’s name and current address and that has an expiration date that has not passed;
  • An original or copy of a current utility bill with the voter’s name and present address;

  • An original or copy of a current government check with the voter’s name and present address;
  • An original or copy of a current paycheck with the voter’s name and present address; or
  • An original or copy of a current other government document (other than a notice of voter registration mailed by a board of elections) that shows the voter’s name and present address.

What Not to Do/Wear at the Polls
Campaigning is not allowed at polling places within 100 feet of the entrance or within 10 feet of voters waiting in line, if the line extends past the 100 feet.
