COLUMBUS, Ohio - Ohio's elections chief says more than 106,000 Ohio voters have updated their addresses online.
Republican Secretary of State Jon Husted introduced a new option on his website on Aug. 9.
The move was aimed at improving registration accuracy, saving money by reducing the workload at elections offices, and potentially reducing the number of voters casting provisional ballots. Voters are most often required to cast provisional ballots because they show up in the wrong precinct.
Husted said valid addresses make Ohio's voter rolls more secure heading into the Nov. 6 election.
He said 13,700 voters used the system on Tuesday alone, which was the last day of registration. Before this year, voters had to use a paper form to change their address.
