Early in-person voting starts this week
From The Associated Press:
COLUMBUS (AP) — Early in-person voting begins Tuesday for the Aug. 7 special election.
Secretary of State Jon Husted says voters in 35 Ohio counties will vote on 60 local issues, including school and local levies and charter amendments.
All non-military and overseas voters can begin voting at designated sites on Tuesday. Husted urges people to check with their local board of elections for locations and business hours.
The deadline to register for the special election is July 9.
Voters seeking to vote by mail can request an absentee ballot until noon Aug. 4. Request forms can be downloaded from the Secretary of State’s website, MyOhioVote.com. Voted ballots must be postmarked the day before the election, or can be returned in person until polls close.
Locally, two items are on the Aug. 7 ballot. Residents in the Madison School District will vote on a 4.9-mill tax levy for an additional 10 years to avoid an operations deficit. Residents in the Chardon School District will vote on a 5.95-mill tax levy for current expenses.
