By Lee Bratcher/Ohio County Monitor

OHIO COUNTY, Ky. — Today is Election Day and the voters of Ohio County will make many important decisions when entering the voting booth. Besides several local offices, the county will also cast votes for state and federal races.

Below, you will find our Meet the Candidate profiles we received from those running for office this year. We also have included video of three candidate forums leading up to Election Day.

We hope you will take the time to read the profiles, watch the candidate forums and educate yourself on those who want to represent you. Some candidates chose not to submit an article to us, but we ask you to search out information on those candidates, as well.

The Ohio County Monitor will not tell you who to vote for, but rather to educate yourself and just get out and VOTE!
