United States – Some of the county election boards in Ohio are planning to be open late Tuesday as the deadline for March 19 primary registration approaches. Early voting begins Wednesday.

Ohioans are picking candidates that belong to a party for the position of president, U.S. Senate, state Legislature, Ohio Supreme Court, and others, as reported by Associated Press.

High-Stakes Republican Senate Primary

Trump has thrown his weight behind Cleveland businessman Bernie Moreno, along with Secretary of State Frank LaRose, in the three-way Republican Senate primary. The other candidate in the race is state senator Matt Dolan.

They are pounding the campaign trail, staging an expensive ad war and fighting in televised debates, fighting each other for the chance to unseat third-term incumbent U.S. Sen. Sherrod Brown, one of the most vulnerable Democrats in the country, as reported by Associated Press.

Ohio Supreme Court Elections

In critical elections to decide on control of the Ohio Supreme Court — which can influence the destiny of Ohio abortion law a great deal — Democrats are defending two sitting justices after initially choosing a primary for a third court seat that is open. 10th District Court Judge Terri Jamison takes on 8th District Court of Appeals Judge Lisa Forbes in that election. The incumbent will face Republican Dan Hawkins, a judge in Franklin County, in November, as reported by Associated Press.

Republican Presidential Nominees

Simultaneously, five Republican presidential nominees are going to be shown on Ohio ballots. However, just two — former President Donald Trump and former Governor of South Carolina Nikki Haley — stayed in the race as of Tuesday.
