Most Duplicates Removed From Ohio's Voter Rolls

Oct 30, 2013

Ohio's top elections official says he's worked with county boards to clear nearly all the duplicate voter registrations from the state's voter database.

Secretary of State Jon Husted said yesterday Ohio only has four duplicate registrations, down from more than 340,000 in January 2011.

Husted says accurate and up-to-date voter rolls make elections more secure and efficient.

He says more than 129 thousand voters have updated their addresses using the state's online change of address system.

Husted says close to 245,000 deceased Ohioans have been removed from voter rolls since 2011.
