The deadline to register to vote in the November election is Oct. 10 . Early voting begins Oct. 11.
Voters may go to MyOhioVote.com/VoterRegistration to register online or update an existing registration. Voter registration forms can also be printed from MyOhioVote.com or obtained from a local library or board of elections office.
Voter registration online in Ohio just started earlier this year.
State issue 2 is the big ballot issue this year and it’s shaping up to be one of the most expensive advertising campaigns in state history.
Issue 2 would require that the state, including the Ohio Department of Medicaid, pay the same or lower prices for prescription drugs as the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs — which currently negotiates drug prices 20 to 24 percent less than other agencies.
There are also hundreds of local mayor, city council, school board, township trustee and other races on the ballot. There are also hundreds of tax issues and school levies facing voters.
