The Secretary of State’s Online Voter Registration (OLVR) system allows an applicant to securely and efficiently submit a voter registration application online to the Secretary of State’s Office. In order to use OLVR, an applicant must have a valid Ohio driver’s license or state identification card. Each applicant is required to provide the following information: his or her name; address; date of birth; and the last four digits of his or her Social Security number and Ohio driver’s license or state identification number.
The information entered by the applicant must be consistent with the applicant’s BMV information.
With the applicant’s consent, the Ohio Secretary of State’s Office obtains the applicant’s signature from the Bureau of Motor Vehicles (BMV).
Any applicant who does not have an Ohio driver’s license or state identification card or who enters information that is inconsistent with what is on file with the BMV is prompted to complete, print, and sign a paper voter registration form.
