Get Ready For Primary Election Tuesday
Be sure to check in with Patch all day and into the evening for all the latest local election news and information.
Tomorrow is an important day for Ohioans: It's Election Day.
Voters who declare a party at the polls will get to decide which candidates will represent their party in races in the fall general election.
For Republicans, tomorrow is the presidential primary, in which they will choose among candidates to represent their party in the presidential election. Other primary races include judgeships, congressional seats, the Ohio Legislature and countywide offices.
There are also a trio of local levies on the ballot:
- a 0.5-mill replacement levy for seniors
- a 2-mill additional levy for Mentor Public Library
- a 2-percent income tax renewal for the city of Mentor
Patch will be your election source with coverage that begins first thing in the morning with information on polling sites. We'll continue throughout the day with stories on voter turnout and a real-time blog that will pull together photos, tweets, stories and commentary about the presidential primary.
Patch local editors will be checking in at polling places to tell you through Facebook and Twitter whether voting is going smoothly and what your friends and neighbors are saying about the issues and candidates.
Throughout the evening, Patch local editors will monitor elections results as they are tallied at the board of elections and will provide updates with local reaction and context.
And of course after Election Day, we'll be there to describe the impact of the voters' decision.
