Important Note about Party Affiliation
Under Ohio law, an elector affiliates with a political party by voting in that party’s primary election. An elector is considered to be a member of a political party if he or she voted in that party’s primary election within the preceding two calendar years, or if he or she did not vote in any other party’s primary election within the preceding two calendar years. (ORC 3513.05. Par. 7)
If you vote in the City of Orrville on May 7, 2019, you will vote a Republican ballot and therefore will be affiliated with the Republican Party until the next Primary Election held in your district, regardless of your previous voting history.
