Time is running out for Ohioans to register to vote in the November election.

The deadline to register is Oct. 5. There are three statewide issues on the ballot. Issue One changes the process for redistricting. Issue Two would make it harder for monopolies to be inserted in the constitution. And Issue three would legalize marijuana in Ohio.

There are also more than 1,700 local issues for fire and police services as well as schools. Voters who want to update their registrations can do so online at the Secretary of State’s website during the next week.

Anyone who wants to register for the first time can download the form from that website and mail it in or drop it off at their local board of elections.
