The November general election is less than a month away and Monday is the deadline to register to vote.

The Muskingum County Board of Elections has special hours Monday and will remain open until 9.

"Today is the last day if you are not registered to vote” says Director of the Board of Elections, Chris Hamill. “You must be registered in the state of Ohio and we are open until 9 pm tonight for you to come in and register to vote."

The Secretary of State’s Office says there will be more than 1,600 local issues on ballots around the state Ohio, including school issues and mayoral races.

"This is a general election, we do have candidates in the city and the county and tax levies and there are some local liquor options."

If you are unsure if you are a registered voter, contact the Board of Elections Office at 740-455-7120 or you can stop by the office.
