Know your voting status

Current law requires Voter List Maintenance. Every year there are voters who may fall into the category to be canceled through registration list maintenance.

If you haven’t voted or had any voter activity in the last 2 federal elections, you could possibly be scheduled to have your voter registration canceled, also known as purging.

In Hamilton County, Ohio last month over 800 voters had their voter registration canceled/purged. Currently, in Hamilton County, Ohio, there are over 5900 voters that are scheduled to be canceled or purged at the end of this year if they do not take some type of action. If you regularly vote, this won’t impact you, but if you are not a regular voter, then you should check your voter registration status.

If you are placed on what they call the supplemental/cancellation list (aka the purge list) you can correct it by taking some form of voter activity. We are encouraging everyone to reach out to the Board of Elections to check their registration status and also to make sure you’re not on the purge list.

In order to ensure your voter registration isn’t canceled, you must have some type of voter activity.

Voter Activity includes:

  • Voting
  • Registering to vote
  • Requesting an absentee ballot application
  • Updating or confirming an address with a board of elections or the BMV
  • Signing a candidate or issue petition that is verified by a board of elections.
