State Representative Marlene Anielski (R-Walton Hills) today voted for legislation that would establish a system whereby Ohioans could register to vote online.


Specifically, Senate Bill 63 gives the Secretary of State the authority to create an online process for voter registration. The bill is aimed at both reducing voter fraud and increasing convenience for applicants.


“The ability to register to vote online will expand opportunities for more Ohioans,” Rep. Anielski said.  “The legislation is a common sense initiative that allows protection against voter fraud, while also expanding the options to register.”


Under the legislation, Ohio residents could apply by submitting a simple form on the Internet that includes information such as name, address, date of birth, the last four digits of their Social Security Number and their Ohio driver’s license or state identification number. To ensure that the applicant is an eligible Ohio voter, the information provided will be matched against information at the Bureau of Motor Vehicles.


The system would take effect January 1, 2017. If enacted, Ohio would become the 32nd state that has some form of online voter registration.


The bill now heads back to the Ohio Senate for further consideration.
