Ohio Voter Registrations Up Since 2016 Election

Oct 8, 2018

Voter registrations are up in Ohio since November 2016, and that pleases a non-partisan group that encourages increased voter participation.

Jen Miller with the League of Women Voters of Ohio says she’s encouraged that, at last check, voter registration rates are up by 2% since the presidential election two years ago.

“We often see a downtick in turnout in midterm elections but this increase seems to indicate an enthusiasm for politics and voting this year.”

Voters have until October 9 to register to vote. Miller says voters should go online to check their registrations before then to make sure they are properly registered for this fall’s election.
