Welcome to the Ohio Secretary of State's Voter Files Download Page. This page was developed to allow users to obtain large sets of Voter data faster than the normal request process. At this page you can download files of all registered voters by county, state senate district, state representative district, congressional district, or the entire state of Ohio. The statewide file is divided into two .zip files SWVF_1_44(Adams-Lawrence) and SWVF_45_88(Licking-Wyandot). The voter files available on this page are updated every week.
The data is in a "comma delimited" format that can be imported into Microsoft Excel or opened in Access as well as many other spreadsheet or database programs. Many of the available files contain a significant quantity of data records. A spreadsheet program, such as MS Excel, may not allow all of the data in a file to be loaded because of a limit on the number of available rows. For this reason, it is advised that a database application be utilized to load and work with the data available at this site. For more information please contact Robin Fields at (614) 644-0770 or RFIELDS@SOS.STATE.OH.US
Each user's Internet connection, (i.e. modem, DSL, T1), will determine the speed by which the file is downloaded. Every effort was made to package the files in manageable sizes for any connection speed.
