Felony Conviction Does Not Bar Voting in Ohio

A felony conviction does not bar a person from voting in Ohio so long as the person is not currently incarcerated for the felony.  This is true whether or not the person convicted of the felony is on probation or parole.  A person who was incarcerated for a felony conviction must register to vote after release (even if previously registered) in order to vote.  A person is also eligible to vote while incarcerated on a misdemeanor or felony charge awaiting disposition.  Two convictions for violating Title 35 of the Ohio Revised Code (pertains to election law fraud) will permanently bar a person from voting in Ohio.


Every vote matters.

Many elections are won by a very thin margin. Every vote truly matters, especially in swing states like Ohio — make sure yours is cast!

More people can have a greater say in their lives by voting.

On average, only about ½ of eligible voters typically vote. This is your right as a U.S. citizen. Exercise your right!

Elections impact you directly.

Local elected officials and local issues are also on the ballot, including judges, taxes, and more.

Your address must be accurate.

Your name and address on file must be current, or your vote will not be valid. You can check this easily HERE.
