Early voting begins Tuesday for Aug. 5 election, but a slim ballot

Tuesday is the first day of early voting in Ohio's August 5 election, although few voters in southwest Ohio will have anything to vote on.

Hamilton County has only two issues on the ballot - an additional 11.2 mill tax levy in the Lockland Local School District and the renewal of a five mill tax levy for fire and emergency medical services in Mount Healthy.

In Warren County, voters in the Lebanon City School District will decide a tax levy renewal that will raise $4.2 million a year for the next three years.

Butler and Clermont counties won't be holding an election. They have no issues on the ballot.

You can download absentee voter applications at your board of elections web site or at MyOhioVote.org.

In person early voting at the Hamilton County and Warren County boards of elections is available during the following hours:

  • Weekend beginning Tuesday through Aug. 1, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
  • Saturday, Aug. 2, 8 a.m. to noon.
  • Sunday, Aug. 3, 1 p.m. to 5 p.m.
  • Monday, Aug. 4, 8 a.m. to 2 p.m.
