Around the state, on the campaign trail and through the halls of the Statehouse, young Ohioans are playing a major role in their communities. The Millennial Generation is now the biggest demographic in America, even outnumbering Baby Boomers. Those born between 1980 and 2000 are becoming a bigger part of Ohio’s policymaking and election process.
A group of conservative Ohio lawmakers thinks it’s time the legislature pass a bill under consideration that would require voters to show a valid driver’s license or state issued photo ID before they can cast a ballot.
Ohioans will vote on primary races for statewide offices, including Governor, as well as a statewide ballot issue that would allow the state to issue bonds for some capital improvements. There are more than 600 local issues on the ballot too.
On April first, election boards will start to mail out absentee ballots to those who have requested them, or Ohioans who want to vote early, in person, can vote at the early voting center designated by their county board of elections.
