^ On September 1, 2017, Ohio's Governor Kasich issued a statement and an updated execution schedule, which changed the execution dates for 19 of 26 condemned prisoners who had scheduled dates between September 2017 and September 2020. The execution schedule for these 26 prisoners now extends through April 2022. 

"Volunteer" refers to prisoners who have voluntarily waived their normal appeals (not necessarily that they have volunteered for execution).
