Voting deadline today

COLUMBUS (AP) — Today is the deadline to register to vote in Ohio’s fall election.

Ohioans also have until today to update their voter information.

The election on Nov. 3 includes three statewide ballot initiatives.

One would legalize marijuana for medical reasons and recreational use, while another seeks to prevent monopolies from being inserted into the state constitution. A separate measure would overhaul how state legislative districts are drawn.

Ohio’s election chief says there also are more than 1,700 local issues on the ballot. Those include a number of levies for police and fire services as well as school funding.

Ohioans can begin voting absentee by mail or in person on Tuesday.
