Voting underway for Aug. 2 primary


News Journal



Early in-person and absentee voting by mail began Wednesday (July 6) for the August 2 State Legislative Primary Election.

Races for Ohio Senate and Ohio House seats were moved from the May primary because of disagreements over new district maps and after the Ohio Supreme Court rejected four sets of maps as unconstitutional.

A federal court ordered the state to implement a third set of invalidated maps for a special August primary election and for the November election.

Below are the candidates and one local issue on Clinton County ballots for the August 2 election in Clinton County.

The reason there are no candidates listed for state Senate on Clinton County ballots is because the Ohio Senate District 10 seat, currently held by state Senator Bob D. Hackett, has two years remaining on the four-year term, said Clinton County Board of Elections Director Shane Breckel.
