Voters can begin casting ballots by mail for the Nov. 5 general election Oct. 1, according to the Cuyahoga County Board of Elections.
There are more than 600 candidates and 88 issues on the ballot.
“This is a very important election,” said Pat McDonald, Director of
the Cuyahoga County Board of Elections. “Voters will elect municipal leaders,
judicial candidates, and school board members. There are also three major County tax issues and proposed
changes to the County Charter that will impact residents. When you cast your ballot
by mail it gives you extra time to study the candidates and issues."
