The polls were open today in Richland County from 6:30 AM until 7:30 PM. Several important races are on the ballot, including choosing the candidates for the U.S. House of Representatives 3rd District and the U.S. Senate, as well as West Virginia Senate and House races, board of education and county commission. They'll also weigh in on a proposal to change the way OH draws its congressional districts. That is aimed at reducing gerrymandering, or the partisan manipulation of maps. Ad season starts sooner, and they track who's cast their ballots.

If you've registered to vote by mail, but believe you have not received your ballot, contact your county elections office.

County clerks will also begin to send absentee mail-in ballots.

This is the first primary election in which Voter ID requirements are included on absentee ballots. Almost three dozen Democratic or Republican legislative incumbents are being challenged within their party Tuesday. Sherrod Brown (D-OH). But he had a surprisingly close race against businessman Mike Gibbons even though he had Trump's endorsement and spent much more money than Gibbons. The county had 49,000 voters in 2014 and only 43,700 registered for the 2018 Primary.

For Tuesday forward, all voters must present identification before they can vote.
