Ohio Bill Regarding Special Elections Headed to Governor
A bill in Ohio has passed both the House and the Senate preventing special primary elections from occurring if only one candidate files for the election, or if no one files to be on the ballot.
If only one person files, he or she will automatically appear on the general election ballot.
If House Bill 18 is signed by Gov. Kasich, it would prevent the state from paying for unnecessary election costs.
