Primary election registration deadline is Monday


The deadline to register to vote for the May 6th primary election is Monday.

The local ballot has a Republican primary for the 79th House District between Rick Chimento, Kyle Koehler and Argeri Lagos. The winner will run against Democrat Darrell Jackson in November in a race to replace state Rep. Ross McGregor, who is stepping down due to term limits.

In Champaign County, there’s also a Republican primary for the 85th House seat between C. Douglas Chamberlain, Robert Luckey III and Nino Vitale. The winner runs against Constitution Party candidate Dave Easton in November.

Several school districts including Clark-Shawnee, Greenon, Tecumseh, Mechanicsburg, Triad and West-Liberty Salem also have levies on the May 6 ballot.

The only statewide race on the May 6 ballot is a Democratic primary for governor between Ed FitzGerald and Larry Ealy.

There’s also a state issue on the ballot for a bond-financed program that helps pay for roads, sewers and bridges. The issue does not raise taxes.

Voter registration forms are available at MyOhioVote.com or from local county boards of election and other designated agencies, such as libraries and BMVs. If a voter has has moved since the last election, they should also update their address on the site by Monday.

Early voting in-person and by mail started earlier this week at county boards of election.
