Are You Ready to Vote?

Your vote matters, so make it heard. Our blog post, Books and Ballots, provides essential information for student voters.

Legislation in the past has been proposed that would require voters to present Ohio licenses, which would pose difficulty for students who are from outside the state. Follow the ACLU of Ohio’s work to educate students about their voting rights, as well as the litigation we have pursued to maintain student voting. Learn how to register and ensure your ballot is counted.

Ohio law allows high school seniors who are at least 17 years old to serve as poll workers. Contact your local board of elections for details.
