Register to Vote in Ohio: Deadline is October 9

Election Day is Tuesday, November 6, and there are important races happening across the Buckeye state.

All of these offices are on the ballot: The governorship. Ohio Attorney General, Auditor, and Secretary of State. Sherrod Brown’s U.S. Senate seat. All 16 of Ohio’s U.S House of Representatives seats. 116 state legislative seats. And about 1/3 of judges on the Ohio District Court of Appeals.

Ohioans will also weigh in on criminal justice reform with statewide ballot Issue 1. With so much at stake, the big question is:

Are you registered to vote? Ohio’s deadline is Oct. 9

Eligible voters must complete or update their voter registration no later than 30 days prior to an election. But first, check to see if you’re registered to vote.  If it’s been a while since you last voted, you should double check that your registration hasn’t been mistakenly purged.

  1. I don’t know if it’s just me or if perhaps everyone else encountering problems with your
    blog. It seems like some of the written text on your content are running off the screen. Can someone else please comment and let me know if this is happening to
    them too? This could be a problem with my web browser
    because I’ve had this happen previously.
    Many thanks
