November General Election

It is less than one month away when the ballots will be counted for the November General Election. Some candidates will win and others will not and some issues will pass and some will not! Will the Board of Elections be counting your vote for candidates and issues?

If you are over 18 years of age by November 7, and registered to vote, it is my hope that you will cast your ballot. You can do that by completing an absentee ballot or by voting in person at the Lorain County Board of Elections prior to voting day or at your polling place from 6:30 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. on November 7. In my opinion, there is no reason not to vote as Ohio has made it so easy for everyone to cast their ballot.

Not sure who or what to vote for or against? There are many ways to become educated about the people and issues on the ballot. There were mayor and candidate forums held and are available to view on city’s website, and much literature to be read on candidates and issues.

There is no reason not to become knowledgeable before you vote. If you need more information, feel free to contact me at
