How is residency determined?

By law, your residence is the place to which, whenever you are absent, you have the intent to return. If you continuously reside outside of Ohio for a period of four years or more, you are not a resident of this state for voter registration purposes, except if you are absent from Ohio because of federal or state government employment, including military service. Leaving for temporary purposes, such as school attendance, does not result in change of residence for voting purposes, unless you register in the area

Do I declare my politics when I register?

No. Under Ohio law, your party affiliation is determined by the ballot you vote in a primary election.

Can a student vote from his/her school address?

Yes, if the student regards that place as his/her residence and registers to vote. Otherwise the student must vote in his/her home community or by absentee ballot if he/she is registered there.
