If you’re interested in being a write-in candidate in the general election, the deadline is quickly approaching.

Muskingum County Board of Elections Director Chris Hamill said write-in candidates have until 4 PM on August 29th to file for office.  She added that the last day to register to vote is October 11th.

"If you want to vote, you need to make sure you are registered by that date," said Hamill.  "It’s very important in the state of Ohio that you are registered."

Hamill said voters who need an absentee ballot can print out the form at the Board of Elections website:  The general election is on November 8th.
