“Husted: Voter signup shouldn’t be dangerous”

Ohio SOS Husted:

In October, I joined victims’ advocates and members of the Ohio House and Senate to announce the Safe at Home initiative, which, once approved by the state legislature, will allow the victims of domestic violence, human trafficking and other crimes to apply for a confidential address that will shield their residence from public record.

Safe at Home will create a registry of victim advocates from around Ohio who will be specially trained to help victims of stalking or other violence establish a confidential post office box within the Secretary of State’s Office. Any time one of the program participants needs to register their address with a company or government agency, they can use their PO box number in my office so their actual location can’t be found by the general public. Any mail received through that box will be forwarded to the victim’s private home address on a daily basis.
