pic3.jpg2014 OHIO ELECTION RULE CHANGES             

Ohio policymakers have been busy enacting a multitude of changes to Ohio elections. And as usual, none of these changes included funding to educate voters about these changes. Thus, it falls to the League and other voter advocates around the state to help voters navigate all these changes.

Rule Changes in Effect for the May Primary:

    Early Voting Days & Hours:

    • 8am to 5pm, Tuesday through Friday, from April 1 through April 4;

    • 8am to 9pm on Monday, April 7 (the deadline for voter registration);

    • 8am to 5pm, Tuesday through Friday, from April 8 through April 11;

    • 8am to 5pm, Monday through Friday, from April 14 through May 2; and

    • 8am to 12pm on Saturday, May 3.

      Rule Changes in Effect for the November General Election:

      1. Golden Week Eliminated: SB 238, which was passed by the legislature and signed by Governor Kasich in February eliminated the so-called - golden week - overlap between the start of early voting and the close of registration. Both early in-person and mail-in absentee voting will begin one week later, the day after registration closes.

      2. Early Voting Days & Hours: On February 25th, Secretary Husted issued Directive 2014-06 setting uniform early voting days and hours for all counties in Ohio

        They are:

        • 8am to 5pm, Tuesday through Friday, from October 7 through October 10;

        • 8am to 5pm, Tuesday through Friday, from October 14 through October 17;

        • 8am to 5pm, Monday through Friday, from October 20 through October 24;

        • 8am to 4pm on Saturday, October 25;

        • 8am to 5pm, Monday through Friday, from October 27 through October 31;

        • 8am to 4pm on Saturday, November 1.

        Other Changes:

        1. Absentee Ballot Applications: SB 205, which was passed by the legislature and signed by Governor Kasich in February prohibits any government official other than the Secretary of State from sending unsolicited absentee ballot application forms. SB 205 also requires that every field on the absentee application be filled out completely or it will be rejected.

        2. Absentee Ballot Envelopes: SB 205 also requires that every field on the absentee ballot envelope be filled out completely or it will be rejected.

        3. Provisional Ballot Affirmation Forms: SB 216, which was passed by the legislature and signed by the governor likewise requires that every field on a provisional ballot affirmation form be filled out completelyˇ including newly required information; or it will be rejected. One positive development is that, for voters who do not appear on the rolls, under SB216 a provisional ballot affirmation form will be able to double as a voter registration form so that provisional voters who upon review are not on the rolls will be registered.
