CHANGE YOUR ADDRESS WITH USPS

Start by updating your address with the United States Postal Service. The USPS keeps a record of your old residential address and will automatically forward mail to your new address for six months. It isn’t foolproof, but the post office does catch most outdated addresses. To update:

  • Visit the Official Postal Service Change of Address website. The USPS charges a $1.05 fee to verify your identity when changing your address online, so you’ll need a credit or debit card.

  • Pick up a Mover’s Guide at your local Post Office and follow all instructions.

IN PERSON

You may obtain a voter registration form, and register to vote in person at any of the following locations:

  • The office of the Secretary of State;

  • The office of any of the 88 county boards of elections;

  • The office of the registrar or any deputy registrar of the Ohio Bureau of Motor Vehicles;

    • The Department of Mental Health;

    • The Department of Developmental Disabilities;

    • Opportunities for Ohioans with Disabilities; or

    • The office of any state-assisted college or university responsible for providing assistance to students with disabilities.

When you have completed your voter registration form, please review it carefully for completeness and accuracy. You may either personally deliver, or send by U.S. Mail, your voter registration form to a county board of elections or the Secretary of State's office. You, or another person acting on your behalf, also may deliver your application to one of the offices listed above, but you should ensure your application reaches the office of a board of elections or the Secretary of State no later than the voter registration deadline, the 30th day before the election at which you want to vote.
