Board of election officials can not stress enough the importance of voting and getting registered to vote.

While this is not a presidential election, it's an election that should have a big turnout. What they call an off year election are the elections that have your local candidates and issues on the ballot. Allen County Board of Elections Director Kathy Meyer says there are contested races all around the county and issues that will personally affect you.

"So it's really very important, it's all your local people. The ones who take care of your roads, take care of your schools, decide some very important things right here in Allen County," said Meyer.

Because of the Columbus Day holiday, you have an extra day to register or update your voting information. The deadline is Tuesday, October 10th with absentee voting starting October 11th.

You can see your sample ballot online at boe.allencountyohio.com.
