One week away from the Ohio General Election

01 Nov 2011, by Benjamin Luftman in Misc, News

The general election in Ohio is coming up in one week. Have you reviewed the issues and candidates?

On November 8, 2011, Ohioans will be exercising their constitutional right to vote in this year’s general election addressing the main issues:

– Issue 1: Proposed amendment to the US Constitution increasing the maximum age at which a person may be elected or appointed as judge and eliminate the authority of the Governor to appoint a Supreme Court Commission.

– Issue 2: Referendum on the new law relative to government union contracts and other government employment contracts and policies.

– Issue 3: Proposed amendment to the Ohio Constitution to preserve the freedom of Ohioans to choose their health care coverage.

per 2011 Issues Report

In addition to many state and local issues, voters get a chance to show their support for elected officials such as Municipal Court Judges, City Council Members, County Auditors and even the Columbus Mayor. Be sure to educate yourself and vote for the certified candidate that you believe will best represent Ohio.
