Voter Registration Form
The registration deadline is 30 days before any election.
Once you are registered to vote, however, you do not need to re-register for each election. If you move from one area of the county to another, you will need to either fill in a new registration form for your new address or just send us a note with your old address, new address and signature. You will receive a new voter card in the mail showing your new precinct and polling location. If you move out of Geauga County, you will have to register in your new county or state.
Yes. If you are registered to vote in Geauga County but move to another address in Geauga County, you can either go to the Board of Elections office prior to election day or your new polling location on Election day. Call the Board of Elections for your new polling location. If you move and your new address is in the same precinct, go to your usual polling location, vote and fill out a change of address form. All voter registration forms will be processed and voter records will be updated.
If you did not register by the 30-day deadline and you are registered in another county in Ohio, you may come to the Board of Elections office or your new polling location and complete a new registration form and vote a provisional ballot.
If you vote a provisional ballot, your ballot will be counted during the official count which is held 10 days after the election. During that 10 day period we will confirm your registration information.
If you moved into Geauga County and did not meet the 30-day deadline, you will not be able to vote in the current election. You may complete a voter registration form at any of the locations listed above, your registration will be processed and you will be qualified to vote in future elections.
Political affiliation is determined by the party ballot a voter requests in a Primary Election. In Geauga County, Primary Elections are only held in even numbered years (unless there are two candidates from one party for Municipal Court Judge).
