Want to vote on marijuana, local issues? Voter registration deadline is Today


The deadline to register to vote in the November 3,  General Election is Monday, Oct. 5.

This year's election is dominated by State Issue 3 which could legalize marijuana for recreational and medical use in the state and State Issue 2 which would outlaw monopolies in the Ohio Constitution.

Issue 2 is a direct response to Issue 3. Also on the ballot is State Issue 1 which would drastically change how Ohio's state House and Senate lines are drawn.

Also on the ballot are hundreds of city council, mayor, township and school board races. There's also county, local and school issues on the ballot.

Important dates to remember for this election are outlined below.
