My niece went to get her CCW yesterday. She had the paperwork, certificates and the money order with her application. She has been an Ohio resident for 31 years. When her husband was active military, she and her children relocated to the different posts. During this time, she maintained her Ohio residency and voted in Ohio elections. She has been back in Ohio for a little over four years, living in Hilliard. However, she had this problem. She had to go over to the ATM and get more money for the permit application, because the deputy (Franklin County) told her that she had been in Ohio a little over four years and not the five needed and she had to pay the extra like people who have moved from other states and have not been residents for five years. He said that it is in the law. Active military deployed are exempt from this, but not the spouses. He said that it is written in the law. I looked online the AG website and looked up the laws for the CCW permit, and indeed found a section for military, but I couldn't find out about anything else concerning this situation. I have never heard a case where someone is an Ohio resident and votes here, but is not considered an Ohio resident. Has anyone else experienced this situation.
