Description:

The Ohio Secretary of State`s Voting Rights Institute has produced a brochure entitled, Serving Ohio`s Aging Population: Information on the Voting Process.  The brochure will serve as a general guide to help answer some common voting-related questions that often arise as older Ohioans adapt to new living situations in assisted living and nursing facilities.  Click here to view the brochure.

The brochure is intended for residents and staff at assisted living and nursing facilities across the state.  It includes information on many of the special circumstances older Ohioans face throughout the voting process, including questions of residency for temporary and permanent residents of assisted living facilities. Also included are ways in which family members, employees and elections officials can offer direct assistance in the voting process, from absentee ballot requests, to transportation and assistance with actual ballot marking.

If you have questions about the brochure or would like to request copies, call 1-(877) VOTE-VRI or send an e-mail to vri@sos.state.oh.us.
