The May Primary may be three months away, but the deadline to file to run for area positions or to put issues on the ballot is approaching. The cut off date is set for February 18th, no later than four p.m. and Muskingum County Board of Elections Executive Director, Chris Hamill, says there are a few things you can definitely expect to see this spring.
"You’ll have you county commissioners. You’ll have your county auditor. We also have the county central committee that are going to run this election, " says Hamill.
There’s also the possibility that the County Home will put a levy on the ballot, and you can expect some state issues too.
Hamill says she is expecting a high voter-turnout for the May Primary, and there will be a location change for four polling precincts.
"The board just gave us the approval to go ahead and change a polling location. Those residents that voted at the Mayesville High School in the Athletic Complex will now be voting at Foxfire, " says Hamill.
Those affected by the change include South Zanesville East and West, and Springfield B and D.
