Can I Register At The Polls On Election Day?
Ohio has "golden week" in which early voting begins 35 days before an election. This overlaps with Ohio's 30-day residency requirement for registering to vote and allows a voter to register and cast an early ballot on the same day. This was initially repealed by the legislature in 2014, but a recent court decision has reinstituted golden week. See NCSL's Absentee and Early Voting page for more information.
