Ways to register.
Anyone can say YES to organ, eye and tissue donation. If you haven’t already said YES at the BMV, there are three easy ways to register.
Register online. You will need a valid Ohio driver license or state identification card.
Say “YES” at the BMV when you receive or renew your driver license or state identification card. You should also talk to your family about your wishes so they can help honor your decision.

Donation in Media
In a 2010 study, 95 percent of Ohioans said they have a positive view of donation, and 80 percent said they would wish to donate to a patient in need – but only 59 percent of Ohioans had actually made the commitment of joining the Ohio Donor Registry. Meanwhile, 3,100 Ohioans await a life-saving transplant.
On average, one will die every 48 hours awaiting a transplant that doesn't come in time. Donate Life Ohio is a coalition of the state's organ, eye and tissue recovery agencies dedicated to educating Ohioans about the need for organ, eye and tissue donation and motivating them to join the Ohio Donor Registry.
