The May primary election is exciting this year, and we encourage voters to turn out and have their voices heard. Ohioans will vote on State Issue 1, a proposal to end the ultra-partisan gerrymandering of Congressional districts. In Hamilton County, two levies will be on the ballot - a renewal levy for the zoo and an increased levy for the County library system. In addition, some smaller jurisdictions in the county will have local issues on the ballot.
When you vote in this primary election, you will be asked whether you want a Republican or Democrat ballot. The ballot you choose will include the candidates seeking to represent that party in the General Election in November, as well as precinct candidates for the Party Central Committee. If you choose not to identify as either a Republican or Democrat, you can ask for an Issues Only Ballot. That short ballot will allow you to vote on Ohio Issue 1 and the local levies and issues.
For League of Women Voters, information on primary candidates go online to Vote411.org. The newsprint Voter Guide is published only in November for the general election.
The League of Women Voters supports Issue 1 on the May ballot. It will reform how Ohio draws Congressional districts and end the manipulation of districts called gerrymandering. League volunteers are working hard to get the word out to VOTE YES ON ISSUE 1. Bette Evanshine is coordinating our campaign. What can you do to help?
