|Elections 2022: Mark Your Calendars!|
Primary Election Day: May 3, 2022
General Election Day: November 8, 2022
Ohio’s State & Congressional Districts: As you may know, Ohio Republicans refused to work across the aisle to draw new districts, which is required by law. So, the unfair maps they drew for Ohio’s senate and house districts, along with the U.S. House districts, are now the topic of many lawsuits being heard soon by the Ohio Supreme Court. This impacts who is running for various offices greatly! You can get the latest information by following Fair Districts Ohio’s updates.
Statewide Elections: We have already met two of the Democratic candidates for Ohio Governor (Dayton Mayor Nan Whaley and Cincinnati Mayor John Cranley), as well as Tim Ryan, candidate for the US House of Representatives. In addition to elections for Ohio House and Senate in new districts, there are four statewide offices up for election: Attorney General, Auditor, Secretary of State, and Treasurer.
Local Elections: The following local seats are up for election. If you are interested in running for any of these seats, contact the Candidate Support Committee for information!
County Commissioner: Barb Lewis’ term ends on Dec. 31, 2022.
Court of Common Pleas – Domestic Relations Division: Judge Randall Fuller’s term expires 12/31/22.
County Auditor: George Kaitsa’s term expires 3/12/22.
Central Committee: Democrats will elect or re-elect all of our Central Committee members (now 167 precincts), who help guide the future of our party. This is the easiest election for Democrats in Delaware County to win, since voters are limited to the Democrats in our own precinct. In order to be elected, or re-elected, there is a simple one page form to complete by February 2, 2022, and only your signature is required. Your name will appear on the primary ballot on May 3, 2022. Click here to access the form or ask your regional representative for assistance.
