As the general election rapidly approaches, Adams County voters will soon be going to the polls to vote on an array of statewide candidates and issues, as well as district and county offices. The contests include the governor and lieutenant governor, attorney general, auditor, secretary of state, state treasurer, and the chief justice and two justices on the Ohio Supreme Court. Also up for election are seats for the US Senate, US Representative to Congress, State Representative, and the Adams County Common Pleas Judge.
There are two statewide proposed constitutional amendments – one that would require courts to consider factors like public safety when setting bail and one that would prohibit local governments from allowing non-citizens to vote.
