The National Voter Registration Act of 1993 (NVRA), Pub. L. 103-31, May 20, 1993, 107 Stat. 77, 42
U.S.C. 1973gg — commonly referred to as the “motor voter law”—became effective on January 1,
1995. One purpose of this Act was to establish procedures to increase the number of eligible citizens
who register to vote by mandating that voter registration opportunities be provided at certain
designated agencies and other public sites designated by the Secretary of State.
The complete text of the NVRA is included in this manual. Also, the EAC’s Website contains a link to
the text of the NVRA: http://www.eac.gov.
Following NVRA’s passage, the Ohio General Assembly enacted Substitute Senate Bill No. 300 to
incorporate the requirements of the federal law into Ohio law effective January 1, 1995. Ohio’s laws
governing voter registration have been amended occasionally since then. Currently, state law
requires certain offices and other public entities to provide, in each of its offices or locations, voter
registration applications and assistance in the registration of qualified persons, in accordance with
R.C. Chapter 3503 as follows:
     •   All designated agencies, in accordance with R.C. 3503.10. “Designated agency” is defined in
         R.C. 3501.01(X) to mean “an office or agency in the state that provides public assistance or
         that provides state-funded programs primarily engaged in providing services to persons with
         disabilities and that is required by the National Voter Registration Act of 1993 to implement a
         program designed and administered by the secretary of state for registering voters, or any
         other public or government office or agency that implements a program designed and
         administered by the secretary of state for registering voters, including the department of job
         and family services, the program administered under section 3701.132 of the Revised Code
         by the department of health, the department of mental health, the department of
         developmental disabilities, the rehabilitation services commission, and any other agency the
         secretary of state designates.
             o    Included in this definition of “designated agency” is each office of a state
                  assisted college or university that provides assistance to disabled
                  students; the Women, Infants, and Children (WIC) program of the Ohio
                  Department of Health; the Ohio Department of Mental Health; the Ohio
                  Department of Developmental Disabilities; Ohio’s Rehabilitation Services
                  Commission; and the Ohio Department of Job & Family Services, including
                  county offices.
     •   All public libraries, county treasurer offices, and public high schools and vocational schools in
         accordance with R.C. 3503.10.
     •   All locations of the Bureau of Motor Vehicles, in accordance with R.C. 3503.11.
Voter registration services also are available to qualified individuals using the services of a
U.S. Armed Forces recruitment office.

                                    AGENCY COORDINATOR

Appointment
Each designated agency, public library, county treasurer’s office, public high school and vocational
school must designate one person within that agency to serve as the Agency Coordinator for the
voter registration program within the agency and its departments, divisions, and programs. The
designated person shall be trained under a program designed by the Secretary of State. The
designated person shall receive no additional compensation for performing such duties. (R.C.
3503.10(A))


Responsibilities
R.C. 3503.10(A) states that each Agency Coordinator “shall be responsible for administering all
aspects of the voter registration program for that agency as prescribed by the secretary of state.”
This includes the following duties:
     •   Developing voter registration plan. Each Agency Coordinator is responsible for
         preparing the written plan by which the designated agency will implement its voter
         registration program and for the filing of the plan with the Secretary of State.
             o    Note: If an agency changes its plan, the Agency Coordinator must file an amendment
                  to the plan with the Secretary of State.
     •   Serving as liaison. Agency Coordinator shall serve as the liaison between the designated
         agency’s sites, the Secretary of State and the county board of elections in the county where
         the designated agency is located. It is a decision of the particular designated agency
         whether to designate one coordinator for each separate agency site or a single coordinator
         for all the agency’s sites.
     •   Designating agency sites. If the agency maintains multiple sites, the Agency Coordinator
         must compile and maintain a list of agency sites and employees providing voter registration
         opportunities. A list of sites, phone numbers, and the name of the Site Coordinator of each
         site, as may be applicable, is to be submitted to the board of elections in the county where
         each designated agency is located and to the Secretary of State.
     •   Training. In cooperation with the Office of the Secretary of State, the Agency Coordinator
         must develop a training program and provide training materials for their Site Coordinators
         and/or their employees who participate in the program.
     •   Reporting. Unless this duty is delegated to the Site Coordinator, the Agency Coordinator is
         responsible for reporting in writing to the board of elections the total number of voter
         registration forms transmitted from the agency. This reporting requirement is satisfied by
         completing the transmittal form enclosed with these materials and submitting that form
         along with completed voter registration forms to the board of elections in the county where
         the designated agency site is located. Each agency is required to submit the voter

         registration forms with the properly completed transmittal form to the board of elections at
         within five (5) days.
     •   Ordering supplies. The Agency Coordinator is responsible for ensuring that the agency has
         a sufficient supply of voter registration forms, transmittal forms, posters, voter information
         brochures and other necessary materials.


                                       SITE COOR DIN A TOR

Appointment
If an agency does not designate one Agency Coordinator for all its sites, then each site must have a
Site Coordinator who is responsible for the daily administration of the voter registration program at
that site. “Sites” are defined as the offices or locations within each designated agency that
participate in the voter registration program.


Responsibilities
Site Coordinators are responsible for the following:
     •   Site employee training. Each employee at the site must receive training on the operations
         of the voter registration program. It is the Site Coordinator’s responsibility to provide training
         to current employees and to train new employees upon arrival. It is the Site Coordinator’s
         responsibility to ensure that all employees at the agency comply with the requirements of
         the program.
     •   Ordering supplies and displaying promotional materials. Site Coordinators are
         responsible for ensuring that:
             o    The agency has an adequate supply of materials necessary to conduct the voter
                  registration services program.
             o    All promotional materials designated by the Secretary of State to be used in the
                  program are prominently displayed at the site.
     •   Reporting. If delegated by the Agency Coordinator, each Site Coordinator is responsible for
         reporting in writing to the board of elections the total number of voter registration forms
         transmitted from the agency. This reporting requirement is satisfied by completing the
         transmittal form enclosed with these materials and submitting that form along with
         completed voter registration forms to the board of elections in the county where the
         designated agency site is located. Each agency site is required to submit the voter
         registration forms with the properly completed transmittal form to the board of elections
         within five (5) days.




Jennifer Brunner, Ohio Secretary of State                                                          Page   | 4

                          VOTER REGISTRATION CHECKLIST

A successful voter registration services program depends on creating and implementing a simple
internal system that will run smoothly with little maintenance. The following checklist will help
Agency and Site Coordinators to determine if they have established a simple and effective program.


Checklist for Agency and Site Coordinators
          •   Become familiar with all aspects of the voter registration program and how the program
              works at the designated agency and/or site.
          •   Make arrangements for initial and on-going training of personnel.
          •   Establish a system for program monitoring and transmitting the completed forms to the
              board of elections. (Note: This is best accomplished by creating a written plan.)
          •   Gather an adequate supply of all materials needed to operate the voter registration
              program. (Note: This includes voter registration forms, and informational materials that
              may be provided to clients, as well as posters and training materials for staff.)


Supplies for Each Participating Site
To implement and operate a designated agency voter registration program, each site shall have the
following supplies:
          •    Voter registration forms. The Secretary of State has prescribed the voter
               registration form mandated by R.C. 3503.14. The form does not identify the designated
               agency which issued the form. No amendments or modifications can be made to this
               form. A sample of this form is included with this manual. (Exhibit A)
          •    Notice of rights/declination form. Each designated agency that provides public
               assistance or services to persons with disabilities must provide a “notice of rights” form
               to each registrant. A sample of this form is included with this manual. This form may be
               copied by the agency. (Exhibit B)
          •    Transmittal form. The transmittal form enclosed with this manual should be used by
               each designated agency when sending voter registration forms to a board of elections.
               The designated agency may reproduce the transmittal form, or the agency may design
               a form that captures the same information for agency reporting. However, each
               designated agency must use a transmittal form. (Exhibit C)
          •    Voter Registration Notification poster. Each designated agency site shall receive
               one voter registration notice prescribed and produced by the Secretary of State
               pursuant to R.C. 3503.10(I). The poster identifies the person designated to assist with
               voter registration, the nature of that person’s duties, and where and when that person
               is available for assisting in the registration of voters. The notice must be displayed in a
               prominent location in the office of each designated agency or entity. (Exhibit D)


Jennifer Brunner, Ohio Secretary of State                                                          Page   | 5
 
    Voter Registration Instruction Manual: For Designated Agencies, Public Libraries, Public High
                  Schools and Vocational Schools and offices of County Treasurers 
 
          •       Voter Registration Instructions brochure. This brochure is to be given to any
                  person who requests three (3) or more voter registration forms from the agency.
                  (Exhibit E)


Procedures for ordering supplies


     •   Each designated agency that is required to provide voter registration opportunities as
         part of its agency program has been supplied with an electronic file containing the template
         for the voter registration form prescribed by the Secretary of State and the Voter
         Registration Instructions brochure, also prescribed by the Secretary of State. Each agency is
         responsible for printing voter registration forms as needed for agency use. Each agency
         and/or agency site is required to maintain a sufficient supply of voter registration materials.
         Each state agency that provides public assistance and services to persons with disabilities
         (designated agency) will need to determine the number of clients it serves both agency-wide
         and per site.
              •     The Agency Coordinator will determine the number of voter registration forms and
                    the sites where the supplies are to be sent. Therefore, it is critical for the Agency
                    Coordinator to remain in constant communication with the Site Coordinator to assure
                    an adequate supply of forms is maintained at all times.
              •     The Agency Coordinator is responsible for allocating supplies, but the Site
                    Coordinator must be aware of the level of supplies at the site office and contact the
                    Agency Coordinator promptly when in need of additional supplies.
     •   Public schools, libraries and county treasurers’ offices should contact the board of
         elections in their county to obtain a supply of voter registration forms.



Note: A sufficient supply of forms is particularly critical during pre-election periods.
Timely ordering of supplies will ensure the year-round voter registration program will
run smoothly.




Jennifer Brunner, Ohio Secretary of State                                                          Page   | 6

                                      EMPLOYEE TRAINING

Any person employed by a designated agency, public high school or vocational school, public library,
or office of a county treasurer may be designated to assist with voter registration. The designated
agency or other public office shall provide the designated person and make available such space as
may be necessary without charge to the county or state. (R.C. 3503.10(H).)

For an agency-based voter registration program to be successful, all employees participating in the
program must be adequately trained to provide, and assist clients with completing, voter registration
forms. Training gives employees the skills and information needed to provide this assistance.
Additionally, arrangements to train new employees and to educate current employees to new or
updated program information should be included in the agency’s program.

Training shall include all of the following:
          •   An overview of the program and explanation of the program’s goals and benefits.
          •   A discussion of the roles and responsibilities of employees.
          •   A review of all materials used in the program.
          •   An education on voter registration rules and regulations, including deadlines.
          •   A step-by-step guide to completing the voter registration form.
          •   A discussion of non-partisanship and how to handle questions regarding enrollment or
              affiliation with a political party. Employees being trained to provide voter registration
              services must be instructed that they are required to maintain political neutrality and to
              refrain from demonstrating political preference or party allegiance.
          •   Instructions that a client’s decision about registering to vote shall not affect the amount
              of assistance, or the extent of the service, that the client will be provided by the
              agency.
          •   Instructions for program maintenance (e.g., ordering or printing supplies, program
              monitoring and reporting).

                        VOTER REGISTRATION PROCEDURES

Generally
Employees must do all of the following while registering persons to vote, in accordance with the
NVRA:
          •   Provide to each individual who wishes to register to vote and who accepts assistance
              the same degree of assistance in completing the voter registration application as the
              agency provides in completing its own forms.
          •   Provide clients of the designated agency receiving assistance through phone, mail or
              e-mail contact with a voter registration application form.
          •   Maintain strict political neutrality and refrain from any partisan political statements.
          •   Transmit completed voter registration forms to the board of elections within five (5)
              days.
          •   Keep confidential any information about a voter registration application originating from
              or submitted to the agency or office, except for reporting the total number of
              registrants from the designated agency, as required by the Secretary of State.


Employees shall NOT do any of the following while registering persons to vote:
          •   Seek to influence an individual’s decision to register to vote or not.
          •   Display or demonstrate any political preference.
          •   Display or demonstrate any party allegiance.
          •   Do anything to lead an individual to believe that registering (or not registering) to vote
              has a bearing on availability of services or benefits to the individual.



Designated agencies
Step one:
   The agency employee:
          •    Provides a blank voter registration application (Exhibit A) and a notice of
               rights/declination form (see Exhibit B) to the client with each application for service or
               assistance, and with each application or form for recertification, renewal, or change of
               address.
          •    States to the client: “In addition to other materials, we are providing you with a voter
               registration application. If you are not already registered to vote, or if you are
               registered and want to update your registration, you may do so here.”




Jennifer Brunner, Ohio Secretary of State                                                          Page   | 8

                  Schools and Vocational Schools and offices of County Treasurers 
 
Step two:
   If the client desires to register to vote or to update his or her current registration, the employee:
             •   Advises the client, “If you need help in filling out the form, I can assist you.”
             •   Informs the client that the client may either return the form to the employee for
                 transmittal to the county board of elections, or return it in person, via another person,
                 or by mail to the office of a county board of elections, the Secretary of State, a county
                 treasurer, a designated agency, or any public library, public high school or vocational
                 school.


Public high schools, vocational schools, public libraries and county treasurers’ offices
   • Offer eligible individuals the opportunity to register to vote.
     •     Upon request, provide a blank voter registration form to the person.
     •     Inform the individual that he/she may either (1) return his/her voter registration application
           to the employee for transmittal to the county board of elections, or (2) return his/her voter
           registration application in person, via another person, or by mail to the office of a county
           board of elections, the Secretary of State, a county treasurer, a designated agency, or any
           public library, public high school or vocational school.


Completing the voter registration application
Any employee responsible for providing voter registration services must answer questions the
applicant may have about the instructions printed on the voter registration form.

The following instructions will help the employee to answer questions and assist the applicant in
filling out the voter registration form:
         Box 1 and 2: “Citizenship and Age:” Must be answered. If the applicant answers “No” to
            either question, the applicant is not eligible to register to vote and may not complete the
            form.
         Box 3: “Last name, first name, middle name or initial, Jr., II, etc.:” Applicant must
            enter his or her full name. If this is a change of name, the new name must be entered in
            this space.
         Box 4: “House number and street:” Applicant must enter his or her current street address,
            including apartment or lot number, if applicable. A homeless person may use the address of
            a shelter or other location at which the applicant has been a consistent or regular inhabitant
            and to which the applicant has the intention of returning. A post office box or postal service
            address cannot be used in place of a residence street address.
         Box 5: “City or Post office:” Applicant must enter his or her city, village or post office
            station.

         Box 10.
      Box 11: “Telephone number:” Applicant enters telephone number. This is voluntary

         address update, applicant must fill in previous voter registration address.

         applicant must affix his or her signature or mark, taking care that it does not touch

         applicant completing the registration form must also include his or her name and address.


         Attorney in fact: If, by reason of disability, an applicant or elector is unable to physically
         affix his or her signature or mark to the voter registration/change of name/change of
         address form, the person whom the applicant or elector has appointed his or her attorney in
         fact under R.C. 3501.382 may sign that form on behalf of the applicant, at the direction, and
         in the presence, of the applicant or elector.

      PROCESSING COMPLETED VOTER REGISTRATION FORMS

An employee who receives a voter registration form will place it with all other voter registration
forms to be transmitted to the board of elections.


          Note: The applicant may choose not to return his or her completed application to the
          employee for transmittal to the county board of elections, but may, pursuant to R.C.
          3503.19(B)(2)(a), deliver or mail the completed voter registration form to the office of any
          designated agency, public high school or vocational school, public library or county
          treasurer’s office, county board of elections or the Secretary of State.

The employee who receives a voter registration application should do all of the following with it:
     •   Date stamp each voter registration form in a manner that does not identify the agency or
         office. Affix the date in a blank space on the form so that the date stamp does not interfere
         with reading the information on the form or scanning the signature. If no date stamp is
         available, the date may be written on the form. (See Exhibit A)
     •   Not later than five (5) days after the date stamped on the form(s), batch together the
         voter registration forms with a properly completed voter registration transmittal form
         (see Exhibit C):
             o    Insert the total number of voter registration forms received at the agency or office
                  on the appropriate line of the transmittal form.
             o    Fill out the remaining information on the transmittal form (e.g., agency/office name,
                  address, date, name of person completing the form, and phone number).
     •   Deliver in person or mail the packet containing the transmittal form and the filled out voter
         registration forms to the board of elections in the county where the agency/office is located.
         The forms must be transmitted to the board within five (5) days of the agency/office
         receiving the registration form. The method of transmittal must be mutually agreed upon by
         the agency/office and the board of elections.


          Note: Establishing a regular routine of delivering or mailing the forms to the board of
          elections on a given day of a week helps to provide consistency of delivery to meet the five-
          day submission requirement.

If an employee who has voter registration responsibilities has any question as to whether a voter
registration form is completed properly, the employee must submit the voter registration form to the
board of elections, as in the case of any completed voter registration form. The board of elections
will determine the validity of the application and, if necessary, contact the person named on the
registration form for any additional information. The employee shall not destroy any voter
registration form entrusted to the employee.

     (2) By mail:
     You may request a registration form from a board of elections or the Secretary of State’s Office
     by mail, telephone, in person, or by having another person obtain it for you. If you have access
     to the Internet, you may download a voter registration application from the Secretary of State’s
     Website at www.sos.state.oh.us.

     You may return your completed registration application in person or via another person to any of
     the locations listed previously. You may return your completed voter registration by mail to the
     locations listed previously, with the exception of offices of the Bureau of Motor Vehicles or its
     deputy registrars.

What is the registration deadline?
  A voter registration form must be received by a board of elections, a Bureau of Motor Vehicles
  office, a designated agency, public library, public high school or vocational school, county
  treasurer’s office or the Secretary of State’s Office at least 30 days before an election for the
                                                              th
  applicant to be eligible to vote at that election. If the 30 day before the election falls on a
  Sunday, the registration deadline is extended to the next business day that is not a legal holiday.
  Forms returned by mail to the Secretary of State’s office or a board of elections office must be
  postmarked no later than the registration deadline for the election.


Does an applicant declare his or her political party affiliation at the time of registration?
  No. An elector declares his or her political party affiliation by voting in a party primary election.


Does an applicant ever have to re-register to vote?
  Yes, if the voter moves; changes his or her name; or fails to respond to an official notice from
  the board of elections and does not vote or update his or her voter registration at least once
  during a period of four years, including two federal elections, after the board of elections mails
  the notice.


What if an applicant has moved or changed his or her name?
  A voter must notify the board of elections if there are any changes to the voter’s registration
  information. The voter must complete and sign another voter registration form with the changes
  of information and submit it in the same manner as an original voter registration application.


     Additionally, a person may change his or her registration information and vote a provisional ballot
     by filing a notice of change of residence or name with the board of elections:
          •    At any time during the board’s regular office hours in the 28 days prior to a general,
               primary or special election or 25 days prior to a presidential primary election.
          •    Until noon on the Saturday before the election.
          •    On Monday, the day prior to the election, during its regular office hours.

                  Schools and Vocational Schools and offices of County Treasurers 
 
          •    On Election Day, during the time that the polls are open. On Election Day, a voter may
               choose to submit a change and vote a provisional ballot at the board office, at the
               voter’s new precinct polling location or at a site designated by the board of elections.


Can a person register if he or she is illiterate?
  Yes. If the individual who is unable to read or write wishes to register or update an existing
  registration, you can read the instructions to the individual and help him or her complete the
  form. If the individual is unable to sign, then pursuant to R.C. 3503.14, he or she is allowed to
  mark an “X” in the signature box indicating the individual’s intent to register to vote or update a
  current voter registration. If the individual registers in this manner, the employee helping must
  sign the individual’s name in the signature box and then sign the employee’s own name. If an
  individual is unable to make a mark, the individual must indicate in some manner his or her
  desire to register to vote or update a current registration. The employee shall sign the
  individual’s name and the employee’s own name and attest that the individual desires to register
  or update his or her voter registration.

         Attorney in fact: If, by reason of disability, an applicant or elector is unable to physically
         affix his or her signature or mark to the voter registration/change of name/change of
         address form, the person whom the applicant or elector has appointed his or her attorney in
         fact under R.C. 3501.382 may sign that form on behalf of the applicant, at the direction, and
         in the presence, of the applicant or elector.


Who is a United States citizen?
          •    Anyone born in the United States, except a child of a foreign diplomat, is a U.S. citizen.
               For purposes of citizenship, being born in the United States includes the 50 states,
               District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, U.S. Virgin Islands, Guam and American Samoa.
          •    Immigrants who are granted citizenship status by the United States Citizenship and
               Immigration Services (USCIS), a bureau of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security.


     There are certain circumstances when an individual automatically becomes a U.S. citizen, such
     as:
          •    Minor children who acquire U.S. citizenship automatically when a parent is naturalized.
               (The citizenship of such children may be overlooked, because they may never have
               been documented as U.S. citizens.)
          •    Children born outside of the United States, whose parents were U.S. citizens at the
               time of the children’s birth. Foreign-born children of U.S. citizens become citizens by
               the operation of laws passed by Congress and are called “derivative or statutory
               citizens.”
               However, citizens born outside of the U.S. may not be able to register if they have
               never resided in the U.S.

     either box, you will be considered to have decided not to register to vote at this time.”;
     (2) If the agency provides public assistance, the statement, “Applying to register or declining to
     register to vote will not affect the amount of assistance that you will be provided by this
     agency.”;

     (2) That each person designated to assist with voter registration not seek to influence a person’s
     decision to register or not register to vote, not display or demonstrate any political preference or

        *(b) Subject to division (B)(2)(c) of this section, an applicant may return the applicant’s
            completed registration form through another person to any board of elections or the
            office of the secretary of state.
        *(c) A person who receives compensation for registering a voter shall return any registration
            form entrusted to that person by an applicant to any board of elections or to the office of
            the secretary of state.
        (d) If a board of elections or the office of the secretary of state receives a registration form
            under division (B)(2)(b) or (c) of this section before the thirtieth day before an election,
            the board or the office of the secretary of state, as applicable, shall forward the
            registration to the board of elections of the county in which the applicant is seeking to
            register to vote within ten days after receiving the application. If a board of elections or
            the office of the secretary of state receives a registration form under division (B)(2)(b) or
            (c) of this section on or after the thirtieth day before an election, the board or the office
            of the secretary of state, as applicable, shall forward the registration to the board of
            elections of the county in which the applicant is seeking to register to vote within thirty
            days after that election.

            truth of the statements made in the registration form shall register the applicant not later
            than twenty business days after receiving the application, unless that application is
            received during the thirty days immediately preceding the day of an election. The board
            shall promptly notify the applicant in writing of each of the following:
             (a) The applicant’s registration;

                  may include a current and valid photo identification; a military identification, or a
                  copy of a current utility bill, bank statement, government check, paycheck, or other
                  government document, other than a notice of election or a voter registration
                  notification sent by a board of elections, that shows the voter’s name and current

                 by providing the last four digits of the voter’s social security number and by casting a
                 provisional ballot. Voters who do not have any of these forms of identification,
                 including a social security number, will still be able to vote by signing an affirmation
                 swearing to the voter’s identity under penalty of election falsification and by casting a
                 provisional ballot.” (Effective September 12, 2008)

            The notification shall be by nonforwardable mail. If the mail is returned to the board, it
            shall investigate and cause the notification to be delivered to the correct address.

         (2) If, after investigating as required under division (C)(1) of this section, the board is
             unable to verify the voter’s correct address, it shall cause the voter’s name in the official
             registration list and in the poll list or signature pollbook to be marked to indicate that
             the voter’s notification was returned to the board.

              At the first election at which a voter whose name has been so marked appears to vote,
              the voter shall be required to provide identification to the election officials and to vote
              by provisional ballot under section 3505.181 of the Revised Code. If the provisional
              ballot is counted pursuant to division (B)(3) of section 3505.183 of the Revised Code,
              the board shall correct that voter’s registration, if needed, and shall remove the
              indication that the voter’s notification was returned from that voter’s name on the
              official registration list and on the poll list or signature pollbook. If the provisional ballot
              is not counted pursuant to division (B)(4)(a)(i), (v), or (vi) of section 3505.183 of the
              Revised Code, the voter’s registration shall be canceled. The board shall notify the voter
              by United States mail of the cancellation.

             nonforwardable mail and is returned undelivered, the person shall be registered as
             provided in division (C)(2) of this section and sent a confirmation notice by forwardable
             mail. If the person fails to respond to the confirmation notice, update the person’s

    (6) A notice, which shall be written in bold type, stating as follows: “Voters must bring
