COLUMBUS—State Representative Dave Greenspan (R-Westlake) today announced the introduction of House Bill 222, legislation he sponsored.

The bill specifies that a valid Ohio Concealed Handgun License qualifies as a form of photo identification for voting purposes. 

In Ohio there are five primary criteria an identification card must meet in order to be appropriately labeled “photo identification” for voting purposes:

1. Name
2. Current address
3. Photograph
4. An expiration date
5. Be issued by the government of the United States or the state

An Ohio CHL license meets the first four criteria, but is issued by a county sheriff’s department.  This bill seeks to include county sheriff’s departments as an authorized issuer.

“House Bill 222 will allow the nearly 600,000 Ohioans who have a CHL license and who are eligible to vote the ability to provide that license as a form of photo identification,” said Representative Greenspan.

The bill is currently awaiting notice for a first hearing in the House Government Accountability and Oversight Committee.
