Board Of Elections Tells Police To Change Address
The Hamilton County Board of Elections orders 29 police officers to clear up their legal addresses or have their voter registrations cancelled.
14 officers from the City of Cincinnati and 15 officers from other jurisdictions registered to vote using police stations as their address, rather than their homes as required by law.
Elections Director Amy Searcy says the cops will also be told that Ohio law lets police officers and fire fighters redact their addresses from the public record.
Public safety employees often do not want their addresses known.
Some of the police officers and others in question actually did vote from the illegal addresses, but the board has not taken any steps to prosecute them.
