Ohioans Face Monday Deadline To Register For November Election

Oct 5, 2015

Monday is the deadline to register to vote in Ohio's fall election. Ohioans also have until Monday to update their voter information.

The election on Nov. 3 includes three statewide ballot initiatives.

One would legalize marijuana for medical reasons and recreational use, while another seeks to prevent monopolies from being inserted into the state constitution. A separate measure would overhaul how state legislative districts are drawn.

Ohio's election chief says there also are more than 1,700 local issues on the ballot. Those include a number of levies for police and fire services as well as school funding.

Ohioans can begin voting absentee by mail or in person on Tuesday.
