Dates and Deadlines for 2016 Ohio School District Issue Elections

    June 2015
    On June 10, 2015, Governor John Kasich signed into law House Bill 153 that will delay the date of the 2016 presidential primary by one week. As many Ohio school districts are considering the submission of ballot issues, it is important to keep in mind the various filing deadlines for the three election dates in 2016: March 15, August 2 and November 8. To assist our school district clients in planning, we are distributing the 2016 Election Calendar, which contains the deadlines for the submission of most ballot issues, including the special requirements for emergency levies, school district income taxes and certain bond issues.
