Only a few precincts will have a No Party ballot, which is an Issues Only ballot. The only precincts with an issue on the ballot include a portion of Bloominggrove and Butler Townships which has a South Central School Income Tax and Bond Issue, Jeff-A precinct, which has a Bellville Village Levy, and Man 1-F and Man 5-A which both have a Local Option question for the sale of liquor at particular establishments in the precinct.
The only procedure available under Ohio Election Laws to change your party affiliation is to request the party’s ballot in a Primary. It does not matter which party a voter is currently affiliated with in their voter registration records. The voter simply states to the poll worker which ballot they want to cast for that Election.
