Voter registration deadline on Monday

Low voter turnout expected

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) – Ohioans have until Monday to register to vote or update their voter information for the fall election.

Voters will pick the next governor along with other statewide officeholders on Nov. 4. Residents also will decide a number of legislative races and the outcome of more than 1,600 local issues.
