November 7th General Election

Created on 7/21/2014 9:36:22 AM
If you are not currently registered to vote in Independence, the deadline to complete a Voter Registration application is October 10th.  If you have recently moved or changed your name since the last election, you too, will need to complete a Voter Registration card by this deadline.

Polls will be open on Tuesday, November 7 from 6:30 am to 7:30 pm.  Please remember to take an accepted form of ID with you to your polling location.

There are two County-wide issues on the ballot:
Issue 1- A proposed Constitutional Amendment regarding "Rights for Crime Victims".
Issue 2 - A proposed Law to require state agencies to not pay more for prescription drugs than the federal Department of Veterans Affairs and require state payment of attorney fees and expenses to specific individuals for defense of the law.

For more information on the above issues, please refer to the Cuyahoga County Board of Elections website, www.boe.cuyahogacounty.us.  

There are no local issues appearing on the ballot, however, you will have the opportunity to select up to seven (7) out of eight (8) candidates running for City Council.  Council Terms are two-year terms and are "at large" positions (serving the entire area rather than a specific subdivision).
November 7th marks the date of this year's General Election.
