There are many important decisions for voters on the May 8th Primary Election Ballot.  These include candidates for Governor, statewide offices, US Senate, US Congress, State House and Senate.  The County Executive and some members of County Council as well as judicial candidates will also be on the ballot.

This Partisan Primary Election is an opportunity for Democratic, Republican and Green party voters to select the candidates who will advance to the November General Election.  However all voters including nonpartisans will have an opportunity to decide State, County, school and municipal issues.

The May 8th Primary also offers people the opportunity to establish their party affiliation, change their party, or become nonpartisan voters.  In Ohio the type of ballot voters choose determines their party affiliation.
