In addition to voting for delegates for the presidential candidates, voters in Tuesday's Primary Election will choose their party's candidates for the U.S. Senate, and Congress.

Republicans statewide have three candidates from which to choose to run against incumbent Democrat Sherrod Brown in the fall. Democrats across the state have two candidates running to become their party's candidate for the Ohio Supreme Court.

Members of both parties in Mahoning and Columbiana Counties will vote on candidates to finish the current term of former Congressman Bill Johnson, as well as a candidate to run in the upcoming congressional term in Johnson's Sixth Congressional District.

While candidates selected to run for the next term will be on the November ballot, those selected to complete Johnson's current term will face off in a special election in June.

Republicans in Mahoning and Trumbull County will also make choices for State Representative and a judicial candidate for the Court of Appeals.

Mahoning County Republicans are being asked to choose candidates for State Representative and Clerk of Courts.

Mahoning County has a sales tax renewal on the ballot.  Poland Township voters will decide on a police department levy, while school renewals will be before Campbell, Poland, and Springfield voters.

Democrats have several candidates in the race for Trumbull County Commissioner.

Trumbull Republicans will cast votes for a member of Congress, appeals court judge, State Senate, State Representative, Clerk of Courts, Sheriff, and County Commissioner.

Kinsman and Vienna Townships have tax issues up for a vote. School issues are before voters in the Bloomfield-Mespo, Bristol, and Warren City School districts.

Columbiana County Republicans will pick candidates to run this November for County Commissioner and Sheriff.

While Madison Township is asking for road levy renewals, voters throughout the county will decide on additional millage for the Columbiana County Regional Park District.

Voters going to the polls on Tuesday may choose either a Democrat, Republican, or non-partisan ballot.  

While partisan ballots have the names of candidates from the two parties, non-partisan ballots have only issues and liquor options listed.
