Monday is deadline to register to vote in May 7 election


The deadline to register to vote for the May 7th election is Monday April 8.

Voter registration forms are available at MyOhioVote.com or from local boards of elections and other designated agencies, such as libraries and BMVs.

If you have moved since the last election, you should visit the site to update your voting address or call your board of elections.

Check Your Registration

Not sure where to vote or if your voting address is up to date? Voters can check their voter registration information, including voting address and polling location at MyOhioVote.com.

What’s on the ballot?

On May 7th voters in 74 counties will decide several local races and 354 local issues, including 141 school issues and a number of local tax levies, bond issues and charter amendments. Many Miami Valley counties do not have competitive races on the May ballot. The only counties in the region with competitive races are Montgomery, Miami and Champaign counties. Most counties have school levies and other tax issues on the ballot.

Look for our online voters guide on April 12 that will tell you more about all of the candidates and issues on the May 7 ballot. We will also have stories on all of the major issues and races in the newspaper in the coming weeks.

In-person absentee voting began April 2 at county board of election offices. For specific information including times and locations, contact your board of elections.
