The Supreme Court has struck down an Arizona law requiring voters to show proof of citizenship when registering to vote.
Ohio does not have such a law, but voters in Ohio have to affirm that they are U.S. citizens when registering.
Summit County elections director Joe Masich says that means those who answer "yes" fraudulently could be charged under the Ohio Revised Code.
"On the voter registration form," Masich tells AkronNewsNow.com, "you sign a statement at the end, where you sign your signature on your the registration form, that you declare under penalty of falsification that I am a citizen of the United States."
Masich says local elections officials, if they discover or are notified of possible fraud, would bring it to the attention of prosecutors.
